Building on his technical expertise in cellular and molecular biology, Emir Avilés-Pagán focuses on patent prosecution, due diligence, and freedom-to-operate analyses.
Dr. Emir Avilés-Pagán received his Ph.D. in biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). As a graduate student in the laboratories of Terry Orr-Weaver and David Bartel, he investigated the developmental control of a master regulator of mRNA translation at the oocyte-to-embryo transition in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. He also identified new regulators of the oocyte-to-embryo transition as part of his research.
Emir earned his B.S. summa cum laude in cell and molecular biology from the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras. His undergraduate research focused on the electrophysiological characterization of human nicotinic acetylcholine receptors variants.
