Pharmaceutical/Biotechnology Deal Statistics Quarterly, Q1 2008

Highlights from the Q1 2008 review of pharmaceutical and biotechnology dealmaking: there was a drought in biopharma financings--particularly from the public markets with only two completed IPOs--but VC funding was strong and made up 40% of the total.
