Patent protection supported by an in-depth knowledge of life sciences

Iasha Chaudhry began her career in genomics research. Working with mutant strains of Caenorhabditis elegans at the Life Sciences Institute of the University of British Columbia she gained first-hand experience in a wide range of molecular-genetic applications and techniques. More recently, her work involved optimizing in vivo genome editing using CRISPR technology.

Iasha assists clients with drafting and reviewing IP-related transactional agreements and policies. She also has experience with trademark procurement and enforcement. During time spent in the U.S., Iasha worked in the IP group at the University of Washington’s technology transfer office.
