Claire Lidston assists the firm with pharmaceutical patent prosecution, utilizing her extensive knowledge in the areas of organic and inorganic chemistry to support the firm’s clients.

Prior to joining Wolf Greenfield, Claire received a PhD in organic chemistry from Cornell University, where her research included developing bifunctional catalysts for ring-opening co- and terpolymerizations of epoxides, cyclic anhydrides, and CO2 based on mechanistic insight and structure/property relationships. Claire earned a masters in inorganic chemistry from Harvard University, where she focused on developing C–H activation catalysts for N-heterocycle synthesis.
