Daniel works within the life sciences field at Carpmaels & Ransford. He covers a wide range of biotechnological inventions, including therapeutic antibodies, antisense compounds, transgenic animals, vaccine formulations and culture media compositions. Daniel is involved in the prosecution of patent applications globally and in EPO oppositions. He has also worked on a number of due diligence and freedom-to-operate projects.
Daniel studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, specialising in Immunology. He graduated with a first class degree and was awarded two Thomas Hobbes Scholarships for excellence in examinations, coming top in the year in one of the major modules of his degree course. Daniel was sponsored through his undergraduate course by a biotech company, where he had a recurring summer placement as a research assistant. His role there related to dendritic cell vaccine development.
Daniel then moved to Imperial College London for his PhD in Molecular Biology. His research focussed on the characterisation of a stress-signalling pathway in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. During his project, Daniel was exposed to a broad range of laboratory techniques ranging from basic biochemical methods to more specialised quantitative cellbased assays. Daniel’s PhD work was recognised by the grant of a number of academic travel awards to present at international conferences.
Daniel entered the patent profession upon completing his PhD in 2012 and is now a qualified patent attorney. In 2014, Daniel was awarded a Distinction in recognition of his examination achievements in the Certificate in Intellectual Property Law course at Queen Mary University of London.
In his spare time, Daniel enjoys playing football, travelling and going on outings with his young family.
