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

Huimin received her Ph.D. 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, she 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.

Huimin 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, she was a technical specialist at an IP boutique firm where she did patent prosecution.

Huimin has been an author on 13 scientific publications, spanning the fields of physics, chemistry, and biology.
