Imogen Cawley

Technical Assistant

Imogen joined Carpmaels & Ransford in 2020 as a Trainee Patent Attorney in the Life Sciences team. She graduated from Pembroke College, University of Oxford with a master’s degree in Chemistry. For her master’s research during her fourth year, Imogen attended the University of California, Berkeley as a visiting research scholar.

In her master’s project, Imogen used chemoproteomics to investigate natural product compounds as novel treatments for breast cancer. Using activity-based protein profiling (ABPP), she uncovered hotspots in the proteome targeted by natural products that may prove fruitful as therapeutic targets in future. Imogen also completed a summer research project investigating the use of Evasin proteins to neutralise chemokine function and their potential as a route to discover anti-inflammatory drugs.

Outside of work, Imogen is a keen horse rider, having previously competed at regional and national level in dressage and ridden for the Oxford University Equestrian Club.
