Will maintain a substantial and active prosecution docket of U.S. and foreign patent applications, with interference, reexamination and opposition practices as they may arise with prosecution. Develop in-depth expertise in particular areas of biotherapeutic technology and provide guidance on patent law issues to business groups and scientists conducting research in those areas.
