Brian T. Chung, Ph.D. is a technical advisor in the firm’s Electrical and Mechanical Practice Group focusing on patent preparation and prosecution for domestic and international clients. He is experienced in medical imaging, micro- and nano-device fabrication, and optoelectronics.
Before joining Oblon, he gained exposure drafting patent applications through Stanford University. He also has industry experience working at an indoor lighting startup and interning with the bioelectronics group at Forschungzentrum Jülich in Germany.
Dr. Chung completed his doctoral degree in bioengineering at the University of California San Francisco / Berkeley, where he developed new imaging methods using hyperpolarized 13C MRI for first-in-human brain metabolism studies.
He is skilled in clean room techniques and NMR spectroscopy; has investigated modalities such as positron emission tomography (PET) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) as well as retinal prosthetic systems; and was a professional contributor to the annual Hyperpolarized MRI Technology Resource Center development workshop hosted in San Francisco.
