Jared Manse brings a valuable combination of technical expertise in bioscience and the law to his IP practice. Jared's scientific interest began as early as 1995 while participating in the Human Genome Project in high school. He pursued the field first by earning a bachelor’s degree in biology from Wake Forest University, performing research in cell biology and genetics labs. Jared then went on to receive his law degree from Duke Law School and a Ph.D. in Molecular Microbiology from the University of Missouri School of Medicine.

As a molecular microbiologist and patent attorney, Jared has overlapping prosecution and real-world laboratory experience in a wide cross-section of biosciences and biotechnologies. He assists clients in life science, biochemical, pharmaceutical and material sciences, and other areas including food law and regulations. His specialized technical experience includes:

  • Antibody/immunoglobulin technologies (including Ig delivery platforms)
  • Biofilters (e.g., nanoparticle, 3-D geometry, and molecular based)
  • Drug development and delivery platforms
  • Agricultural and food (e.g., seed and fertilizer-based protection and enforcement; FDA/USDA regulation)
  • Biomarker assays and other technologies (e.g., immunocytochemistry)
  • Protein therapeutic design, including functional and structural characterization 
  • Nucleic acid synthesis and purification, site-directed mutagenesis, and protein competent cell line derivation

Jared draws on his deep knowledge of bioscience and the law to assist clients in patent prosecution, IP licensing, litigation and strategic planning regarding infringement and validity. He is experienced in inter partes and post-grant reviews and was part of a team that successfully litigated three IPRs all the way through oral argument at the Federal Circuit.

During his doctoral program, Jared participated in a joint departmental program that focused on disease therapeutics and included additional faculty training in immunology and veterinary pathobiology. His research focused on the molecular and functional characterization of bacterial toxins, and often required a steady hand and clear plan to avoid any accidental exposures to things like botulism, tetrodotoxin, and various other dangerous toxins, bacteria, and viruses.
