Andy utilizes his background in organic chemistry to assist clients in the drafting and prosecution of patent applications.
Andy’s doctoral research focused on the design and synthesis of small molecules of biological interest. Examples include allosteric effectors of hemoglobin as potential treatments for carbon monoxide poisoning, and analogs of a naturally occurring toxin that could be used as tools to study a rare liver disease. In addition to being a trained synthetic organic chemist, Andy’s work in graduate school involved close collaborations with researchers in chemical biology and medicine.
Andy is a co-inventor on a patent arising from his work in graduate school and has had research published in Tetrahedron Letters.
