Jessica von Reyn focuses her practice on US and foreign patent prosecution in the biotechnology space. She has worked with a diverse array of clients, including start-ups, universities, smaller companies, and large corporations. Jessica has extensive knowledge in the areas of RNA therapeutics, cell engineering, antibodies, gene therapies, and medical devices.

Jessica also has experience in prosecuting biotechnology patents relating to immune response modulators, drug delivery, antibodies, cell culture, assay design, nucleic acid sequencing, antisense nucleic acid therapeutics, and peptides. 

Prior to joining Wolf Greenfield, Jessica was a research technician in the University of Vermont College of Medicine’s Vermont Lung Center, where she researched mechanisms of lung biology and disease, including aspiration-related lung injury progression, in both laboratory and clinical settings. Her work predominantly focused on the effects of gastroesophageal reflux (microaspiration) and the resulting airway hyperresponsiveness, in asthmatic patients.

Jessica has co-authored several publications relating to her research, in addition to several chapters exploring the intersection of information technology, healthcare, and intellectual property protection.
