This Week in the Twitterverse

A pretty quiet week for @crossborderbio on Twitter.  The first part was consumed by a tech deal of some magnitude, and the second part was U.S. Thanksgiving.  Nevertheless, a few tweets escaped:

For those who don’t follow @crossborderbio and for those who just like everything wrapped up nice and neatly in one post, here’s the Twitter news from the week.  Also, if you’re interested, I made a Twitter list of great Biopharma, HealthIT and Health twits.  Check it out here.

This Week in the Twitterverse

A lot of my tweeting this week was live reporting/commentary/snark from the first ever Canadian Science Policy Conference. The conference was a great success and will hopefully spur continued reflection and action in the coming months.  The highlight for me was moderating a panel on commercialization comprising Tom Brzustowski, Ronald Dyck, Jorge Niosi and Mark Romoff. My thanks to them and to the organizers for the opportunity.

Aside from that, here’s what was up @crossborderbio this week:
