Background

Kimberly Reynolds, Ph.D. is a Technology Specialist, Patent Agent in the Boston office of Fish & Richardson. Her practice emphasizes U.S. and foreign patent prosecution, opinion work, and strategic counseling, primarily in biotechnology and other life sciences. She performs competitive patent analyses and identifies third-party patent risks, and provides patentability and freedom-to-operate opinions. Kimberly also has experience in opposing and defending patents before the European Patent Office and in U.S. litigation and post-grant proceedings.

Dr. Reynolds’s graduate work included kinetic analysis of the viral protease and helicase of the hepatitis C virus using biochemical and biophysical techniques and developing nanoparticles to target the viral genome. Her postdoctoral work focused on characterizing the mechanism of a histone acetyl transferase complex that is misregulated in acute myeloid leukemia and epigenetic landscape of transcriptionally active gene bodies using innovative epigenetic and molecular techniques.

Technical areas of Dr. Reynolds’s prosecution and opinion work include molecular biology, biochemistry and biochemical pathways, genetics, cellular biology, virology (including methods of treating viral infections and producing viruses), recombinant nucleic acid and protein products (including methods of producing them and use as therapeutics), RNAi, mRNA, lncRNA, chromatin remodeling, array technology, immunology, recombinant antibody screening and engineering, molecular medicine, screening and diagnostic assays and kits, biomarkers (including genomic, proteomic, and metabolic), transgenic plants and animals, cell lines, nanoparticle technology, surgical procedures, and vaccines.
