Abstract

Life Sciences, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries are recognized globally as key drivers of modern economic progress, offering enormous potential for linking basic research innovations with new market opportunities. The impact of the progress in the biosciences is being felt particularly across the United States, as demonstrated by bioscience job growth, up 5.7 percent between 2001 and 2006, and the number of bioscience establishments, up 15.7 percent nationwide during the same time period. A key to development of this industry is information technology. This panel will explore the emerging IT challenges faced by healthcare, biotechnology and pharmaceutical organizations.
