Dedicated biotechnology and chemistry patent support
Margaret Robinson assists with prosecuting patent applications, particularly in the areas of biotechnology and chemistry. Her core technical experience lies at the nexus of analytical chemistry, biotechnology and materials science.
She has experience as a postgraduate research scientist, including work dedicated to prototyping next-generation spectroscopic bioanalytical instrumentation in industry. During her doctorate, Margaret worked in the Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology, where she developed methods for background-free imaging of nanomaterials in complex biological environments. She was independently awarded a seed grant for the synthesis of novel nanoparticles to serve as optical probes.
Margaret’s broad scientific background and enthusiasm for learning helps her to quickly get up to speed on client technologies while her technical writing and communication skills are leveraged in drafting and prosecution.
