One doesn’t ordinarily associate social media with biotech, but increasingly, biotech and other life science businesses are using and encountering social media in global markets. Join us as Rupa Cornell, Senior Director and Legal Counsel at Biogen discusses some of the issues that a global biotech company like Biogen faces in today’s networked global markets and the challenges and opportunities that social media presents in different and highly regulated markets such as Japan, Europe and the US.
