Dr. Yogini Bhavsar-Jog is a Scientific Advisor at Kim Winston LLP and assists in the preparation and prosecution of patent applications.
Prior to joining the firm, Yogini was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Medicine, where she investigated structure and function of Septin higher order assemblies during cell cycle progression. Yogini earned her Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Mississippi. Her Doctoral research focused on the study of biophysical properties of non-canonical DNA structures. Yogini also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Technology with a major in Technology of Intermediates and Dyes from the Institute of Chemical Technology.
During her postdoctoral work at University of Pennsylvania, Yogini worked at the Penn Center for Innovation where she performed technology assessments, conducted patentability evaluations, and wrote marketing material for a wide variety of inventions in the life sciences, physical sciences, and medical device fields.
