Patent Advisor, Registered Patent Agent - Boston

Contact Information

Dr. Jyoti Tibrewala is a patent advisor and registered patent agent in Foley Hoag's Boston office, where she assists in patent prosecution in the life sciences. 

Dr. Tibrewala’s graduate research focused on the use of synthetic metalloporphyrins as catalytic antioxidants in diseases related to oxidative stress. She worked in the areas of ligand design, optimization of synthetic methodology, and characterization of paramagnetic iron porphyrins. Her training included several technical areas, such as inflammatory diseases, antioxidants, chemical sensors, heme proteins, porphyrins, catalysis, inorganic chemistry, and organic chemistry. In graduate school, she also helped organize a campus-wide research symposium across all disciplines, to bring university research to the public. Dr. Tibrewala was a recipient of the Merck-Patchett Fellowship, and she was also an invited speaker at the Catalysis Society of Metropolitan New York.
