Foreseeable Boost for Biotechnology

This week's Nasdaq Corporate Solutions Advisory Services commentary features Joe Rosenberg, healthcare and biotechnology specialist, delivering his outlook for the biotechnology sector in 2015:

  • 2015 promises to be a big year for M&A - companies will seek to expand their portfolios of marketed drugs, grow their R&D pipelines, and complement existing businesses.
