Ms. Yuwen Liu, Founding Partner, BOHE Angel Fund; former Chairwoman & CEO, Suzhou Industrial Park Biotech Development Co. Ltd. (BioBAY);

Ms. Kimberly Nearing, Managing Director, Head of Life Sciences, Cedrus Investments.

BIO's Mr. Damond said, "We were delighted to have Ms. Nearing's presence on the panel, we found her comments insightful, and her remarks together with observations about what has happened and is going to unfold in China's pharmaceutical market might be the impetus for executives of western companies in attendance to start including China in their market access plans if they do not have one in place yet. We hear from a lot of clients, and rightly so, that the value of their assets to potential partners in China has just increased because of the reduction in development time."
