In addition, she has also been involved in assisting clients in better understanding the patent portfolios of their competitors. Prior to joining the firm, Lynn worked as a researcher at Pfizer, Inc. where her work included molecular approaches to drug and vaccine development, development of disease models, and evaluation of drug and vaccine efficacy, as well as working with project teams to facilitate the development of proactive patent strategies. For more than 10 years, Lynn was involved in all aspects of research related to the development and testing of modified-live, killed, and recombinant vaccines for viral and bacterial diseases. The research included immunological-based studies to screen and identify potential antigens and to evaluate the response of the immune system to the antigen(s) as a measure of vaccine efficacy. She was also involved in the development and testing of recombinant antibody libraries to facilitate the identification of new reagents and possible alternatives for treatment.
