Cristin Berkey focuses her practice on US and foreign patent prosecution and patent portfolio analysis and management. She has extensive knowledge in the areas of therapeutic antibodies, polypeptide biologics, antisense technology, and microorganism based therapies.

Prior to joining the firm, Cristin was an associate at Lando & Anastasi.

Cristin completed her postdoctoral research at Children’s Hospital Boston in the lab of Dr. Paula Watnick, where she identified genes regulating the immune response to cholera infection. As a graduate student at Columbia University, Cristin characterized signal transduction pathways involved in invasive growth in yeast in the lab of Dr. Marian Carlson.
