Burns & Levinson announced today that Dr. Ronda Moore and Dr. Janine Susan, partners in the Intellectual Property Group, have been selected as 2017 Women Worth Watching® in STEM by Profiles in Diversity Journal. According to the PDJ, the 45 winners “are breaking barriers for women in STEM careers.” The PDJ also noted that “supporting women in STEM is an essential part of a worldwide strategy to innovate, educate and build a more connected world.”
Dr. Moore has had a multifaceted STEM career across two different professions, and continues to break new ground every day. Using her experience as a veterinarian and scientist, and background in pathology, she advises inventors and senior management of pharmaceutical, biologic, medical device, and medical diagnostic companies, start-ups and emerging companies, venture capital, and universities on a wide range of intellectual property (IP) issues.
Dr. Susan focuses her practice on all areas of chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology, including small molecules, as well as engineered monoclonal antibodies, transgenic animals, and vaccines. In particular, Dr. Susan is well-grounded in the area of the biology and chemistry of peptides, polypeptides and monoclonal antibodies.
“Ronda and Janine’s service to our clients is invaluable, and we’re delighted to celebrate their impressive achievements and to support their careers in the STEM industry,” said David Rosenblatt managing partner at Burns & Levinson.
The 45 STEM winners will be profiled in a special STEM Women Worth Watching edition of the PDJ that will celebrate the value they create for women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
