Tiffany Reiter, Ph.D., focuses her practice on U.S. and foreign patent prosecution, opinion work, due diligence studies, and patent portfolio development.

Tiffany has extensive experience prosecuting patents for life sciences innovations including:

  • Molecular biology and cellular biology
  • Biochemistry and biochemical pathways
  • Genetics
  • Virology
  • Recombinant protein manufacturing
  • Nucleic acid vectors and RNAi
  • Chromatin remodeling
  • Array technology
  • Immunology
  • Recombinant antibody screening and engineering
  • Molecular medicine
  • Screening and diagnostic assays and kits
  • Biomarkers
  • Transgenic plants and animals
  • Cell lines
  • Nanoparticle technology
  • Surgical procedures, vaccines, and neuroscience

She also drafts patentability and infringement opinions regarding these technologies, conducts extensive due diligence investigations to uncover infringement risks, and guides clients in building commercially valuable global patent portfolios.

As a post-doctoral fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health, Tiffany gained research experience working on a project combining the fields of neuroscience, molecular biology, and biochemistry. As an intern at Northrup King, she worked on transgenic plant research, and as a student at the Mayo Graduate School, she studied the redox regulation of metalloenzymes using molecular biology, cellular biology, biochemistry, and a variety of spectroscopic methods.

Tiffany's interests include archeology, anthropology, gardening, and mystery fiction.
