The MoFo BioMeter is an index that measures the health of the biotechnology industry. The BioMeter averages up-front payments in licensing, collaboration, and development agreements between biotechnology companies (broadly defined) and companies that pay for commercialization rights. We focus on up-front payments because they are the most concrete representation of the value of a development-stage asset, and also because in an era of constricted venture funding for unapproved therapeutics, up-front payments from collaboration agreements have become an increasingly necessary source of capital for companies to sustain their development efforts. The BioMeter also allows us to measure changes in the industry, or by sector, over time.
