I identify external therapeutic and technology platform licensing and/or collaboration opportunities, negotiate agreements and manage the resulting partnerships and collaborations. These partnerships are an important component of Calico’s research and development efforts focused on the basic biology of aging and age-related diseases. As a patent agent, I also manage Calico’s growing intellectual property portfolio.
Before Calico, I negotiated agreements and managed the intellectual property at ImaginAb, Inc. Previously I was at UCLA’s office of technology transfer responsible for prosecuting, developing and licensing the university’s research inventions.
