J.P. Morgan Healthcare Confab: Live Blog

SAN FRANCISCO ( TheStreet) --The 29th annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference kicks off this morning with key biotech presentations from Celgene ( CELG), Vertex Pharmaceuticals ( VRTX), Dendreon ( DNDN) and Human Genome Sciences ( HGSI).

Here's how this live blog is going to (hopefully) work: I will be posting news updates and analysis throughout the day, live from the presentation rooms and breakout (Q&A) sessions. How can I do this, you might be asking. There's an app for that, literally. I'm using an iPhone live blog app tied into TheStreet's publishing system -- pretty neat.

This J.P. Morgan confab live blog will be similar to the real-time coverage of FDA advisory panels with one big difference: Expect more breaks in between my postings today since I'll be moving around the conference and waiting for companies to present throughout the day. I'll do my best to give you continuous coverage but understand that I'm somewhat at the mercy of the AT&T Network and my ability to type into my iPhone while weaving through crowds and listening to biotech executives speak.

Your best bet is to check back into the live blog several times throughout the day.

Like my previous live blogs, I want to keep today's coverage interactive, so feel free to ping me with comments and questions. I will publish and respond to as many of your comments and questions as I can.

Here's my planned schedule for the day, subject to change, as always. (All times Eastern):

11 am: Celgene
12:30 pm: Vertex Pharmaceuticals
1 pm: Onyx Pharmaceuticals ( ONXX)
2:30 pm: Dendreon
4:30 pm: Amylin Pharmaceuticals ( AMLN)
5:30 pm: AMAG Pharmaceuticals ( AMAG)
6:30 pm: Human Genome Sciences
