Technical Assistant

Agata joined the Life Sciences group at Carpmaels & Ransford in September 2018. She is involved in cases in the biotechnology sector, with particular focus on biologics and antisense compounds. She assists with prosecution and opposition of European patents, and with handling of global patent portfolios.

Before joining the firm, Agata completed a DPhil in Medical Sciences at the University of Oxford. Her doctorate research project investigated the use of viral and non-viral gene transfer vectors to express therapeutic antibodies in vivo as an alternative to passive administration for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and prophylaxis of RSV infection.

Prior to pursuing her DPhil, Agata graduated with a first class MSci 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, countryside walks with her dog, and trying out new recipes.
