Angie Calderon, Ph.D.
Angie D. Calderon, Ph.D. serves as a Patent Agent in the areas of chemistry, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals.Dr. Calderon assists with drafting patent applications, assists with prosecuting U.S. patent applications, and corresponds with foreign associates to guide the prosecution of foreign applications.
Dr. Calderon graduated magna cum laude from Georgia State University with a B.Sc. degree in Chemistry in 2010 and a Ph.D. in Chemistry in 2016. As a graduate student, Dr. Calderon worked under the guidance of Dr. Peng G. Wang. Her research focused on the application of human glycosyltransferases on the chemo-enzymatic synthesis of well-defined complex N-glycan structures, which are valuable as standards and probes for glycan analysis and elucidating functions of glycan-binding proteins. She was also awarded several fellowships during graduate school including the Gordon Research Conference Fellowship for underrepresented minorities, Department of Education GAANN Fellowship and SMDP Biotechnology Fellowship. While in graduate school, Dr. Calderon served as an intern at the Emory University Office of Technology Transfer where she evaluated the marketability and patentability of inventions including therapeutics, medical devices, and diagnostics.
Upon completion of her degree, Dr. Calderon worked as a Toxicologist at a drug confirmation laboratory in the Atlanta area. Her role involved research and development of new analytical techniques for different diagnostic screenings. She was also responsible for data interpretation and reporting of clinical samples submitted for diagnostic drug confirmation analysis using LC/MS/MS.
Dr. Calderon has experience in a diverse range of research disciplines including in the areas of biochemistry, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, and biotechnology. She has presented her research at numerous regional and international conferences, such as the ACS National Meeting, Gordon Research Conference on Bioorganic Chemistry and International Carbohydrate Symposium.
