Biotechnology patent support with scientific experience
Peter Volberding assists in the preparation and prosecution of patent applications, with a focus on biotechnology. He leverages his background as a bench scientist in the fields of immunology, cell biology and biochemistry, in combination with a creative and collaborative approach to patent drafting and prosecution, to secure patent protection for clients’ innovations.
Peter has experience drafting and prosecuting patent applications related to vaccines, adjuvants, diagnostic assays, small molecule pharmaceuticals, siRNA, cellular therapies, antibodies, chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells, nanoparticles and CRISPR related technologies. His dissertation focused on the mechanisms by which the immune system regulates inflammatory T cell responses to chronic viral infections. In addition, Peter has experience working in a leading biomedical research institution's technology transfer office.
