After receiving my Ph.D. with Howard Temin from McArdle in 1987, I was a post-doctoral fellow with Dr. John Coffin at Tufts University School of Medicine and then with Dr. James Mullins at Harvard University School of Public Health, and a post-doctorate associate with Dr. Ashley Haase at University of Minnesota Medical School. During my tenure in Dr. Haase’s laboratory, I was a first author on a paper published in Nature that has been cited more than 1000 times and was recently awarded a place on the University of Minnesota Medical School’s "Wall of Scholarship". I attended Hamline University of School of Law, and have been practicing patent law for over 20 years with an emphasis on biotechnology, including diagnostics and therapeutics, and have been very fortunate to work with small and large companies as well as many different top tier universities.
