More Best Than Worst of Times for Area Biotech Sector

In the 12 years of Ingram's Industry Outlook assembly series, Polsinelli's Kevin Sweeney did something that no previous chair had thought to do: begin his presentation with a recitation from Charles Dickens.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times," said Sweeney, who proceeded to read the rest of the entirely apt opening paragraph of The Tale of Two Cities. This excerpt summarized Sweeney's feelings on the state of the biotech industry in this region.

Recently, some of the thought leaders in the biotech community gathered at Polsinelli for a substantive discussion of biotech today. Leading the discussion included Polsinelli's Life Sciences Chair Kevin Sweeney and Science and Technology Chair Patrick Woolley.
