Nicholas Vincent, a technology specialist and PhD candidate in Microbiology at Yale University, combines extensive research and leadership experience to provide a unique approach to biotechnology and the law. Nicholas has contributed to research in fields ranging from developmental immunology to bacterial genetics, and currently studies ribosome assembly in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a basic science process with vast potential for clinical and disease management applications. His research has taken him across three academic labs, seven years, and two academic institutions. Alongside his research experience, Nicholas currently serves as the Chair of the Yale Graduate Student Assembly, a representative graduate student governmental body, where he serves as an advocate to his constituents and liaises with the University on their behalf. Nicholas leverages this experience and applies it to assessing and implementing approaches to anticipate client needs in helping them protect their inventions.
Nicholas’ areas of technology include microbiology, molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, protein biology, RNA biology, microbial pathogenesis, and immunology.
