QUALIFICATIONS
  • University of British Columbia, B.Sc. (Cell Biology and Genetics), 2005
  • Washburn University School of Law, J.D., 2014
 

Iasha Chaudhry is an articling student in our Vancouver office, and has completed her Juris Doctor degree at Washburn University School of Law. 

During law school, Iasha was a member of the Intellectual Property Law Society and treasurer and vice president of the Asian American Law Students’ Association. She received and maintained a foundation scholarship and graduated with Dean’s honours. While working at the University of Washington’s technology transfer office, Iasha gained valuable experience in US patents, trademarks, and IP/technology agreements.

Prior to joining the firm, Iasha worked for a number of years in genomics research at the Life Sciences Institute of the University of British Columbia, working with mutant strains of Caenorhabditis elegans. Accordingly, Iasha has first-hand experience in a wide range of molecular-genetic applications and techniques. Most recently, her work involved optimizing precise in vivo genome editing using CRISPR/Cas9 technology to increase successful DNA integration events and minimize off-target modifications. She also worked on using whole-genome and amplicon sequencing on pooled mixed populations to identify and isolate mutants in genes of interest in a high-throughput manner.
