Victoria Julian assists the firm in biotechnology patent prosecution. She has extensive knowledge in the areas of neuroscience and biological sciences.

Victoria’s legal experience includes assisting with patent filing decision making, which she was first exposed to while working as a compliance specialist at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Prior to joining Wolf Greenfield, Victoria earned her PhD from University of Massachusetts Medical School. Her research focused on identifying regulators of axon regeneration after spinal cord injury. Specifically, she studied how the gene, tir-1/Sarm1, inhibits axon regeneration after injury using the roundworm, Caenorhabditis elegans.
