Speaker Bio:

Dr. Sun-Hoffman is a founding partner in Liu, Zheng, Chen & Hoffman LLP. She is a patent attorney with 20-year experience focused on innovative life sciences. Dr. Sun-Hoffman has deep knowledge in all aspects of patent practices, ranging from policy, patent preparation and prosecution, due diligence, and opinion work, through licensing and technology transfer negotiation. Before making her career transition, she has over ten years of biomedical research experience including several years as a postdoctoral research fellow with several publications at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Frederick and Bethesda, Maryland. Dr. Sun-Hoffman’s diverse background has prepared her to tackle the toughest challenges facing innovative life sciences companies today, starting with her time as a patent examiner at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). She left USPTO to serve as managing patent counsel at Celera Genomics before joining the Life Technologies Corporation (formerly Applied Biosystems, now ThermoFisher). She is a frequent speaker in China, the US, and Europe, including participation at the invitation of USPTO to speak at SIPO and WIPO Conferences.

Dr. Sun-Hoffman obtained her Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Nevada Reno (Nevada, U.S.), J.D., from the University of Maryland School of Law (Maryland, U.S.), and B.S. in Biology, East China Normal University (Shanghai, China).
