I joined the Office of Innovation, Technology & Alliance as a Licensing Associate in January 2013. I am responsible for managing a portfolio of intellectual and tangible research properties developed by UCSF investigators comprising basic life science and medical science technologies, including software. 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 very much enjoy the uniqueness and challenges in the field of intellectual property and technology transfer.
