Dr. Huimin Chen supports our patent prosecution practice in the areas of medical devices, biotechnology, and life sciences. Dr. Chen's research experience includes biochemistry, molecular biology, biophysics, microscopy, and single-molecule spectroscopy.

Dr. Chen received her PhD in Applied Physics from Cornell University. As a graduate student, her interdisciplinary research involved single-molecule spectroscopy of DNA and RNA molecules to characterize their biophysical properties.

After graduating, Dr. Chen was a postdoctoral research associate at Cornell University, where she worked at the Cornell High Energy Synchotron Source (CHESS) and the Cornell Nanofabrication Facility (CNF) to build microfluidic devices for optical and X-ray characterization of single molecules.

Dr. Chen was a Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA) postdoctoral fellow at the National Institutes of Health, where she studied the mechanisms of transcriptional splicing using clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) and single molecule imaging.

Before joining the firm, Dr. Chen was a technical specialist at a IP boutique firm where she did patent prosecution.

Dr. Chen has been an author on thirteen scientific publications, spanning the fields of physics, chemistry and biology.
