Erik M. Stang, Ph.D., is a registered patent agent in the firm’s Chemical Patent Prosecution group, focusing on patent preparation, patent prosecution, and providing technical consulting for domestic and international clients in a wide array of technical areas, including pharmaceuticals (small molecules and biologics), organic synthesis, catalysis, biotechnology, polymers, inks, and nanomaterials.
Prior to joining the firm in 2014, Dr. Stang worked as a Research Investigator in oncology chemistry drug discovery at Bristol-Myers Squibb where he worked on both early and late stage research programs in the cancer therapeutic area, including protein-protein interaction inhibitors and antibody-drug conjugates featuring a variety of payloads. These medicinal chemistry programs included small molecule, millamolecular, and biologic research areas.
Dr. Stang completed his doctoral studies at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. There, he developed and applied carbon-hydrogen activation reactions in complex molecule synthesis, including the synthesis of members of the erythronolide macrolide antibiotics and dehydrogentive Diels-Alder reactions.
