LSN's journey to spread the word about the first  RESI conference in Europe, taking place on March 25 th in Vienna has been a great success.

In addition to curating the LSN Investor Platform and organizing the RESI Conference series, LSN also provides the LSN Company and Licensing Deals platforms, which provide information on life science activity all over the world.   Our Licensing Deals data includes any deal announced that includes a financial metric (such as an up-front or milestone payment).   Therefore it doesn't capture deals that are announced with no financial specifics, but it does provide a broad overview of current activity in the pharma dealmaking space.

So what happened in 2018?   The most stark point is that many deals were made very, very early...
