Jian Yang is an experienced scientist, inventor, and US Patent Agent. His passion is to help early-stage biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies build strong IP portfolios around their valuable inventions. His greatest reward is to witness the patented products begin serving millions of ordinary people and becoming the next "big thing."
Jian came straight from the other side of the table. He helped two multinational corporations, BD and Quidel, choose from dozens of early-stage technologies and narrow down to a few commercially successful next-generation platforms. He has real-life experience in product development, regulatory systems, and customer support. Building on his technical expertise, Jian is an expert at helping clients design and maintain a complete patent portfolio for diagnostic platform technology and associated products.
Jian received his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry from Michigan State University. He then took on a post-doctorate position at UCLA School of Medicine, in Biological Chemistry Department. Jian is currently registered to practice before the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. His real-life technical background allows him to stand out in drafting and prosecution of diagnostic patents, including molecular assays, diagnostic methods and processes, companion assays, composition and formulation, novel biomarkers, sample collection and treatment, state-of-the-art platform technology, novel detection technology, reader/reporter technology, software and AI, data management, cyber security, and product designs.
