Jared Manse brings together a scientific understanding in bioscience with a strong legal background in his intellectual property law practice and offers valuable support to his clients in patent prosecution, IP licensing, litigation, and strategic planning for infringement and validity matters. He is experienced in inter partes and post-grant reviews, having been part of a team that successfully litigated three IPRs with oral arguments presented at the Federal Circuit.

As a molecular microbiologist and patent attorney, Jared possesses a remarkable combination of practical laboratory knowledge and prosecution skills in a diverse range of biosciences and biotechnologies. His areas of expertise include life science, biochemical, pharmaceutical, material sciences, and 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’s fascination with science ignited early during his involvement in the Human Genome Project in high school back in 1995. This curiosity led him to pursue a bachelor's degree in biology from Wake Forest University, where he engaged in research in cell biology and genetics labs. Building on his passion for both science and law, Jared earned his law degree from Duke Law School and a Ph.D. in Molecular Microbiology from the University of Missouri School of Medicine.

During his doctoral program, Jared participated in a specialized departmental program focused on disease therapeutics, which included additional training in immunology and veterinary pathobiology. His research centered on the molecular and functional analysis of bacterial toxins, necessitating careful attention and planning to avoid any accidental exposures to hazardous chemicals, bacteria or viruses, radiation, or toxins like botulism and tetrodotoxin.
