I joined the Office of Innovation, Technology & Alliance as a Licensing Associate in January 2013. I am a zealous business development professional, with a passion for science and immense respect for innovators. I am privileged to work closely with the UCSF community of students, scientists, clinicians. I manage a diverse and exciting intellectual property portfolio and catalyze the transfer of UCSF scientific developments to the public through licensing and partnerships.
I am responsible for managing a portfolio of intellectual property developed by UCSF researchers comprising of therapeutic, device, software and dHealth technologies. My activities comprise evaluating invention disclosures from the campus laboratories; conducting technology assessments from a commercial perspective; formulating and implementing licensing and intellectual property management strategies; marketing the technology to prospective licensees; coordinating the filing and prosecution of patent applications; negotiating and writing contractual agreements and licenses.
I hold a BS in Life Sciences (with Honors), M.S in Molecular Genetics (with Distinction) and Ph.D. in Cardiovascular Sciences (2011). I did my doctoral work on Angiopoietin ligands at the University of Leicester, UK, where I studied the molecular basis of Angiopoietin-Tie binding interaction using a combination of rational design and directed evolution. I like reading about latest scientific innovations and enjoy the uniqueness and challenges in the field of intellectual property and technology transfer.
