Objective: Seeking an Innovative and Challenging opportunity in the Biotechnology Industry,as a Patent Analyst where I can apply my technical skills to grow professionally and add value to the organization.

Educational Qualifications:

Trainee as a Patent Analyst, at IIPTA, Delhi, 2012.

Master of Biotechnology, University of Queensland, Australia – July 2008. GPA: 6/7.

Bachelor in Engineering (Biotechnology), Bapuji Institute of Engineering and Technology, Visvesvaraya University, India- June 2006. Remarks: Distinction

Technical Skills:

Patent Search Strategies, Prior art search, Novelty search, Patentability search, Claim mapping, Infringement analysis, FTO search, Validity search, Preparing Claim charts

Knowledge of Patent Laws of US, Europe and Inida

Patent landscape/ competitive intelligence

IP landscaping

Proficient with the FDA regulations on the Recombinant vaccines

Familiar with the GLP\GMP requirements in the manufacture of Recombinant vaccine

Computer skills:

Conversant with MS productivity tools. ( MS word, excel, power point)

Communication Skills:

Superior writing and oral communication skills with a particular ability to translate scientific concepts into language easily understood by the non-scientist

Work Experience:

Worked as a lecturer at S.I.E.T Engineering College, from Jan 2009 to Aug 2009 and at S.I.T College, Tumkur from Sep 2009 to Dec 2009.

Academic Project details:

Written white papers on “Natco Vs Bayer” regarding compulsory license, “Utility patents”, “Patentability of Biologics” and “Wochkart Vs Roche” regarding post grant opposition and New amendments of the Copy Right Act, 2012, India.

1. Landscaping project on the technology “Microencapsulation”.

2. Patent portfolio project on “Glenmark” .

3. Independent study on “Practical difficulties in moving the Recombinant Vaccines through FDA regulations.”

Conducted at: AIBN at University Of Queens land

Guidance: Dr. Evan B. Siegel, President and CEO, Ground Zero Pharmaceuticals Inc, New York.

Project details: The focus of this management study was to analyze the shortcomings in the approval procedures for recombinant vaccines (targeted for the US market) by the FDA. The loopholes were thoroughly examined and solutions were suggested as to how the process could be speeded up. The solution suggested easier procedures and less expensive methods with a focus on quicker time to market.

Result: The findings of the literature review opens solutions to many problems which help drug companies to launch their drugs to the market in a much lesser time with hassel free/error free documentational procedures.

4. Analysis of Poly (D, L-lactic acid-co-glycolic acid) / Hydroxyapatite porous composites for bone tissue engineering.

Conducted at: AIBN at University Of Queens land

Guidance: Prof. Justin Cooper-White.

Project details: Three types of highly porous poly (D, L-Lactic–co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) / hydroxyapatite (HA) composite scaffolds were synthesized with a thermally induced phase separation (TIPS) method of different cooling regimes. DNA assay, X-ray diffraction, Mechanical strength and electron microscopy analysis were performed to study and deduce conclusions on the incubation periods, compressive modulus and the high porous structure of the three types of scaffolds.

Result: Synthesized PLGA (HA) composite scaffolds showed the high porous structure with good dispersion of hydroxyapatite on the surface under scanning elctron microscope. The second type of PLGA (HA) scaffold showed the highest mechanical strength and showed characteristics of a good scaffold in the field of bone tissue engineering.

5. Analysis of Butyl carbamate using HPLC method.

Conducted at: Biocon Pvt Ltd, Bangalore, INDIA.

Activities and Achievements:

Prsently undergoing training as a Patent Analyst, at IIPTA, Delhi

Participated in the Uniquest Research Commercialization Workshop, Australia.

Participated in the Feel Employable Training Course.

Have won second prize at the collage competition at the inter-college fest.
