Tickers in this article: AMRN ARIA BIIB BMRN CELG DNDN GILD MDVN ONXX VRTX VVUS

SAN FRANCISCO (TheStreet) -- It's Day One of the 31st annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference. Welcome to TheStreet's live-blog coverage which today will include presentations from Celgene (CELG) , Onyx Pharma (ONXX) , Amarin (AMRN) and Biogen Idec (BIIB) , just to name a few.

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. You can also follow me on Twitter, my handle is @adamfeuerstein.

Your best bet is to check back into the live blog several times throughout the day. Feel free to ping me with questions and comments. I'll do my best to respond and keep the live blog as interactive as possible

Here's my planned schedule for Monday, subject to change, of course. All times Eastern and don't ask how I'm going to manage to be in two places at one time. I haven't figured that out yet:

11 am: Celgene
12:30 pm: Onyx Pharma
1 pm: Vertex Pharma (VRTX)
1:30 pm: Biomarin (BMRN)
2:30 pm: Amarin
5:30 pm: Biogen Idec and Vivus (VVUS)
6:30 pm: Gilead Sciences and Dendreon (DNDN)
7:30 pm: Medivation (MDVN) and Ariad Pharma (ARIA) .
