Henry Lin

Technical Assistant

Henry joined Carpmaels and Ransford in 2018 as a Trainee Patent Attorney. He holds a PhD in Biotechnology from the University of Cambridge, an MSc in Biochemical Engineering from University College London and a BSc in Medical Biochemistry from King’s College London. Over the course of his studies, he has spent considerable time looking at the various phases in the development and manufacture of biopharmaceuticals, such as genetic manipulation, fermentation and downstream processing.

Henry wrote his PhD thesis on “Surface display of heterologous proteins on Bacillus subtilis spores.” Bacillus subtilis spores have gained increasing attention and interest as useful bio-particles suitable for surface display, due to their relative ease of genetic manipulation and resistant properties. Potential applications such as vaccine delivery, enzyme immobilisation and affinity chromatography were investigated.

Outside the office, Henry’s hobbies include photography, web design and programming.
