Christopher Lee Wright

Associate

Christopher Wright helps clients protect scientific innovations involving biotechnology and chemistry though patent prosecution and patent and trade secret litigation. Chris brings the combined experience of a patent attorney and a former faculty member at a medical school and an undergraduate university to his work. Chris has a Ph.D. in Neuroscience and a B.S. in Physiology/Neurobiology. He was also a research associate and post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine, and a visiting assistant professor at Loyola University in Maryland, where his research focused on neuroendocrinology, brain development, molecular biology, epigenetics, and neuroimmunology.  By combining his research, education and legal experience, Chris is able to make complex, scientific advances into relatable, allowance-granting prose. His work also includes freedom to operate and invalidity searches.

Chris has prosecuted patent applications in a wide range of scientific disciplines including: molecular biology, induced pluripotent stem cells, vaccines, lipid and enzyme assays, cancer therapies, antibody binding proteins, small-molecules, and polymers, including ethylene vinyl ester alcohols, imides and epoxies.
