    • ....well you certainly dug up the CV goods on Chippy. That guy reads like a used pharma salesman in a white polyester lab coat. So it's a buyout again.
      Now for the secondary that apparently wasn't exercised recently in that 100mil share turnover game. Wonder if that had anything to do with a potential buyer? INCY must be getting antsy. Maybe the shelf is GERN's poison pill threat to stop any hostile takeovers
