Numerous biopharma companies and organizations presented at the JP Morgan Healthcare conference held this week in San Francisco. Three with either headquarters in Philadelphia or ties to the area, were of note for their overview of 2022 and their outlook for 2023 and beyond. Here’s a look at presentations by Amicus Therapeutics, Avantor, and Jazz Pharmaceuticals.

In the hustle and bustle of planning experiments, growing a business and improving services, visual branding often stumbles toward the bottom of the priorities list for life science companies. While companies used to be able to get away with quickly putting a logo together and creating a scrappy website using a pre-existing Wix template, an increasingly crowded life sciences market is making leadership teams rethink their visual presence.
Baltimore, MD is continuing to emerge as one of the next great cities for medtech and medical device innovation. That’s just one of the reasons that Maryland was selected to host MedTech Innovator (MTI) and BioTools Innovator (BTI) for their East Coast pitch events on March 28-31, 2023. MTI and BTI are the largest and highest-performing global pitch competitions and accelerator programs for the life sciences field. Companies can apply before January 31st.
This past year was both exciting and challenging, as the world started to regain some normalcy following the COVID-19 pandemic. Mask mandates were lifted, travel restrictions lessened, and more companies reopened their offices for in-person work. While many of us are relieved by these recent changes, the pandemic has irreversibly impacted our way of life and how we work, especially for those of us invested in the biotech industry. Public opinion on science and medicine has become increasingly more polarized and politicized, and conversations about vaccination have never been louder. Apart from outside voices, the industry has struggled under continued supply chain shortages, staffing issues, market woes, and layoffs.
We at BioBuzz have always strived to center ourselves around the individuals who have worked to push the biohealth sphere to new heights. Our “5 Questions With…” series embodies this effort as we have highlighted professionals at all levels, from early career to the C-suite, from scientists to business developers to managers and directors. Regardless of position or title, the many individuals highlighted in 2022 are all changemakers in their own right and we greatly appreciate their work and contribution to this series.
A Gilead Sciences company, Kite announced Tmunity’s next-generation CAR-T therapies and technology will complement its own cell therapy research capabilities. Kite’s acquisition of Tmunity, founded by Carl June, creates a strong bridge between the BioHealth Capital Region, where Kite maintains its manufacturing capabilities in Frederick, and the Greater Philadelphia biohub.
Today, we are excited to announce the winners of our 3rd Annual BioBuzz Awards.
