Ella Wells

Associate

Ella works in the Life Sciences group at Carpmaels & Ransford. She has particular expertise in bioinformatics and digital health, and works with a range of clients in diverse technical areas including DNA and protein sequencing, sequence analysis, genome editing, therapeutic antibodies, and immunotherapies. Ella has extensive experience in patent drafting and prosecution, as well as in preparing freedom to operate reports, conducting opposition proceedings at the EPO, and coordinating global prosecution strategies.

Ella joined Carpmaels & Ransford in 2020 after almost three years at a London law firm, and qualified as a European and UK patent attorney in 2021. Ella holds a first class degree in Molecular & Cellular Biochemistry from the University of Oxford. At university, her Master’s project was in the Computational Biochemistry group, where she used molecular modelling to investigate the strain energy in drug-like molecules when binding to their protein targets and associated changes in torsion angles within the molecules.

Outside of the office, Ella is most often found with a book in her hands. Ella also enjoys knitting and embroidery, and is attempting to learn to make bread.
