She returned to Fish after being a summer associate in the firm in 2019 and an extern at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in 2017. Dr. Moran conducted part of her Ph.D. dissertation research at Roche Pharmaceuticals in Basel, Switzerland, as an intern in the Synapses and Circuits Division. Her research specialties include patch-clamp electrophysiology, chemogenetics, stereotaxic surgeries, molecular biology, tissue engineering, pharmacology, and fluorescence microscopy.
During law school, Dr. Moran served as Editor-in-Chief of her law school’s intellectual property journal and was awarded the Dean’s Medal for highest GPA. She also represented inventors before the USPTO as a student practitioner, and served as a corporate counsel extern, addressing compliance and risk management issues in a corporate hospital setting.
