Adam S. Raymond, Ph.D.
Adam S. Raymond, Ph.D. serves as a Patent Agent in the areas of biotechnology and pharmaceuticals.Dr. Raymond drafts patent applications, prosecutes U.S. patent applications (drafts responses, amendments, and appeal and reply briefs), and corresponds with foreign associates to guide the prosecution of foreign applications.
As a graduate student, Dr. Raymond worked with a variety of genetic models including C. elegans, genetically modified mice, and primary and immortalized mammalian cells. As part of his dissertation research investigating the molecular mechanisms underlying mammalian fertility, he identified novel functions of the adhesive protein SED1 (MFG-E8) in maintaining the integrity the male epididymis. Dr. Raymond was awarded an appointment to the National Institutes of Health Training Grant in Biochemistry, Cell, and Molecular Biology, and he was selected to present his research at the 4th International Workshop on the Epididymis in Chatel-Guyon, France.
While at Emory University, Dr. Raymond served as an intern in the Office of Technology Transfer where he evaluated the marketability and patentability of early stage life science inventions including therapeutics, drug delivery systems, medical devices, and diagnostics. He also composed marketing materials and assisted in the development of formal business plans for Emory University start-up opportunities.
Dr. Raymond has co-authored several manuscripts including "Functional genomics reveals relationships between the retrovirus-like Ty1 element and its host Saccharomyces cerevisiae," Genetics. 2003 Jul;164(3):867-79; and "A novel role for SED1 (MFG-E8) in maintaining the integrity of the epididymal epithelium,” J. Cell Sci., Mar 15;122(Pt 6):849-58 (2009).
