                                 Vice President Govt Relations


         Terry serves as Vice President Government Relations for Arena
    Pharmaceuticals, a late stage biopharmaceutical company located in San
 Diego. She is a biotech executive with over 25 yrs experience with a unique
 combination of environmental and biopharmaceutical operational experience
paired with government relations and compliance expertise. She co-chairs the
   BIOCOM legislative committee and is a very active member of the biotech
    community. Prior to Arena, Terry served the biotechnology industry as a
    government relations consultant during 2007 and in various positions at
 Ligand Pharmaceuticals, a San Diego based drug discovery and development
company with five commercial products where she worked for 14 years. Prior
  to moving to California in 1991, Terry was Superintendent of environmental
   operations at a chemical manufacturing division of a major pharmaceutical
     company in NJ. Ms. Ghio is currently an appointee of California State
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to the California Colorado River Board and a
 prior appointee of Governor Davis’ administration to the San Diego Regional
                          Water Quality Control Board.

Biotechnology was founded in
    California and is one of
   California's most valuable

Southern California Life Science Community Facts

•   There are approximately 40,000 employees in the life science community in San
    Diego County at more than 700 companies, including traditional biotech, medical
    device, diagnostic and technology companies and institutes (Rich’s California
    BioScience Directories, 2008).
•   There are four major academic institutions (UCSD, Scripps, Salk, Burnham)
    and many smaller ones in San Diego County.
•   In 2007, Southern California received more than $1.79 billion in research
    funding from the National Institutes of Health, over half of California’s total
    ($3.1B) and third to the entire states of Massachusetts ($2.2B) and New York
    ($1.9B), respectively, in overall funding (Source: NIH).
•   Southern California healthcare venture capital was $1.68 billion in 2007, with VC
    investment in the region exceeding Boston’s in 2007. San Diego alone took in
    $1.22 billion in 2007 (Source: Dow Jones Venture One).
•   Annual economic impact in San Diego (direct and indirect): $8.5 billion (Source:
    San Diego Associationof Governments).

California’s Opportunity

•   Nearly 2,700 biotechnology companies and more than 100 universities
    and research organizations employ 260,000 Californians — more than
    the telecommunications, aerospace or motion picture industry.
•   Average salary for biotechnology employees is $70,000 — 60 percent
    higher than the average wage across California.
•   Manufacturing jobs start around $40,000 per year plus full family health
    benefits. Growth in this sector is expected to be 20 percent over the next
    five years.
•   About three-quarters of biotechnology companies plan to expand their
    California-based research and development and manufacturing activities
    over the next two years.
•   California universities receive over $3 billion in National Institutes of
    Health funding, more than any other state.
•   California biotechnology attracts more life science venture capital than all
    other states combined, nearly billion.

• California biotechnology companies generated billion in revenues
  and more than billion in total salaries in 2005.
• Almost half of California biotechnology companies have 50 or
  fewer employees; 57 percent have fewer than 100 employees.
• California biotechnology re-invests an average of 42 percent of its
  revenues back into research on life-saving therapies.
• Biotechnology is California's third largest exporter, selling goods
  to other countries worth more than billion a year.

    California's continued support of biotech will
     provide life-saving advances to reduce long
   term health care costs as well as individual pain
                      and suffering.

Reducing Our Environmental Footprint

•   Mandatory recycling
•   Minimization of all waste on all levels
     –   Water, energy, supplies, travel, furniture, hazardous materials use, everything!

•   Investment in rooftop solar array
•   Green Chemistry training
•   New 75,000 sq ft building
     –   Primarily office to free up space in other bldgs for R&D expansion and to ad capability for
         commercial and regulatory resource expansions – capacity for 200 employees
     –   New SDG&E standard for energy efficiency
            − Exceeds Title 24 energy efficiency standard by 30.9%
     –   LEED Gold Certification expected
     –   Permitting challenges overcome in unacceptable timeframe
     –   Waterless urinals and drought tolerant plantings
     –   Etc…

•   What’s next??

Unintended Consequences of Good Intentions

• Land Use planning
• Water availability and reliability – mandatory cutbacks, how do
  we define process water??
• Environmental programs
    – ie/ bench top treatment to minimize risk

• Disproportionate regulatory burden vs other states and countries
• Duplicative and sometimes conflicting programs (federal, state,
  county, city)
• Healthcare Policy
    – Defining and measuring success
    – i.e. Obesity
