Ricardo Moran is a registered patent attorney practicing intellectual property law with an emphasis on small-molecule pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals and their formulations; imaging agents; and materials science. Dr. Moran’s practice focuses on chemical and pharmaceutical intellectual property law, including pharmaceutical patent litigation; preparation and prosecution of patent applications; infringement, validity, patentability, and due diligence analyses and opinions; and counseling of clients in a wide range of aspects of intellectual property law. Ricardo received his B.S. in chemistry (1991) from Allegheny College; his M.S. in organic chemistry (1993) from Emory University; his Ph.D. from the University of Maryland, College Park (1997); and his law degree (J.D., 2005) from the American University Washington College of Law. After receiving his Ph.D., he worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Moran is an author of several peer-reviewed scientific publications, and his professional association memberships include the American Chemical Society (ACS) and the New Jersey Intellectual Property Law Association (NJIPLA).
