Scott's well rounded chemistry and biochemistry training allow him to effectively assist clients with the preparation and prosecution of U.S. and international patents.
Scott leverages his advanced degree in chemistry to provide valuable insight on patents related to organic chemistry, surface chemistry, pharmaceuticals, cancer, medical imaging, drug delivery and nanotechnology.
His doctoral research involved the development of small-molecule probes and nanoparticles for imaging and therapy of human diseases such as cancer. The interdisciplinary nature and significance of Scott's work was recognized with an NIH-sponsored CBI fellowship, which encouraged collaboration at the interface of the chemical and biological arts. Additionally, he recently helped advise a wound care drug startup company and competed in several business startup competitions including the prestigious Rice Business Plan Competition.
Scott has experience working with a diverse range of clients, including individual inventors, small biotechnology startups, university professors and large chemistry companies.
