Sophie Warwicker BSc MSc

Sophie joined the team at Graham Watt & Co in March 2015 as a Technical Assistant and is currently training to become a UK and European patent attorney.

Sophie graduated from the University of Southampton in 2013 with an Honours degree in Biomedical Science, where she particularly enjoyed modules relating to pharmacology, immunology and neuroscience.  Sophie completed two final year projects, the first involving research and analysis in the field of DNA nanotechnology, focussing on plasmid dimer formation using DNA crossover junctions.  Sophie’s second project was based on the botulinum neurotoxin with a focus on its mechanism of transport and its affects on the neuromuscular junction.

Sophie then gained a post-graduate Masters in Management of Intellectual Property from Queen Mary University of London.  During her Masters, Sophie undertook a dissertation that focussed on the availability of Supplementary Protection Certificates for pharmaceutical products.

Following her masters Sophie undertook some freelance patent research work for a small company that were concerned with the treatment and management of neurological disorders. 

Since starting at Graham Watt & Co, Sophie has gained experience in a variety of different technical fields but predominantly works in the field of medical technology, having specific interests in pharmaceuticals, microbiology and immunology.  Her day-to-day work involves the prosecution and maintenance of patents at the UK and EPO.  She has also been involved in opposition work at the EPO and drafting patent specifications.
