Elizabeth Boehm assists the firm in biotechnology patent prosecution, and has extensive knowledge in the areas of biochemistry, molecular biology and biophysics.

Prior to joining Wolf Greenfield, Elizabeth was a post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard Medical School where she studied the role of a specific protein in DNA repair. Elizabeth was previously a graduate research assistant at the University of Iowa. While there, she explored in vitro and biophysical studies of DNA replication and DNA repair.

Elizabeth’s graduate work resulted in several publications of research articles, review papers, essays and method papers.
  • Subramanian Doctoral Thesis Award in Biochemistry
  • Marion David Francis Innovator Award
