Agata joined the firm’s Life Sciences practice group as a Trainee Patent Attorney, in September 2018, after she completed her PhD in Medical Sciences at University of Oxford. Her doctorate research project investigated the use of viral and non-viral gene transfer vectors to deliver therapeutic antibodies as an alternative to passive administration for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and prophylaxis of RSV infection.
Prior to pursuing her PhD, Agata graduated with a first class integrated Masters degree in Human Genetics from University College London. Her final year project focused on characterising integrons – a type of mobile genetic element – found in the human oral metagenome.
Outside of the office, Agata enjoys yoga, horse riding, sailing and trying out new recipes. She also spends much of her free time dreaming of having a dog.
