At the BioPharma Forum in China
From the Conference Registration Form:
"...At this conference, top biotech investors, leaders of biotech firms from around the world, and senior China governors will be invited to share ideas and insights regarding introducing world-class biotech products to China as well as exploring the potential of leveraging local biotech innovations and research resources."
During the morning session of meeting day one, immediately after the keynote speech by Zheng Xiao Yu, head of the China State Drug Administration, I gave a presentation on data management in the Bio-Pharmaceutical industry.
Earlier in the year I provided data management and application development services to the overseas (US-based) conference organizer, BioPharma Greenhouse. Through this relationship they learned of my expertise in data management and I learned (a little) about biotechnology. By working with their team of biotech Ph.D.'s, I was able to put together my presentation.
Although I learned a little bit of Mandarin Chinese, I gave the presentation in English. Simultaneous translation into Mandarin was provided by the conference organizers.
