Dr. Rachel Fadler is a patent agent in the Intellectual Property department, and she works on diverse matters in life sciences fields, including pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. She assists with drafting patent applications, preparing office action responses, and conducting due diligence. During her Ph.D., Dr. Fadler worked in a supramolecular chemistry laboratory, where she gained experience in small molecule organic synthesis and detailed data analyses for thermodynamic, kinetic, and mechanistic studies. Dr. Fadler’s research focused on threaded architectures (pseudorotaxanes), which have potential applications in molecular machines, gradient materials, and adhesives. Her research resulted in peer-reviewed publications, fellowships, and awards. Dr. Fadler is currently pursuing a Juris Doctor at Wayne State University Law School.
