Agata Antepowicz

Associate

Agata joined the Life Sciences group at Carpmaels & Ransford in September 2018. She works in the biotechnology sector, with a particular focus on biologics, antisense compounds and gene therapy. Agata handles patent prosecution both in Europe and globally, and assists in a number of EPO oppositions, including multi-party cases.

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 work, Agata enjoys getting out in nature with her two rescue dogs and trying out new recipes.
