Background

Kathleen Fleming is a Technology Specialist with Fish & Richardson in the Boston office. Dr. Fleming supports patent prosecution in chemical, biochemical, and biotechnology industries.

Her bachelor’s degree in Chemical-Biological Engineering included contributions to diverse team projects – e.g. modeling biological processes in bioreactors, investigating hydrolysis of sugar-rich corn alternatives in pressurized reactors, designing polymer films to release antimicrobial peptides, and utilizing RNA interference to probe gene interaction networks. Her doctoral research, with Dr. Erin O’Shea, elucidated a transcription factor cascade using genetics and biochemical assays, including assays coupled to high-throughput sequencing (e.g. ChIP-seq and RNA-seq). Prior to joining Fish & Richardson, she contributed to drafting patent applications at a Boston-based biotech company.
