During his time as a patent agent at Taylor English, Martin Chang has advocated successfully for the allowance of several of his client's patents. Mr. Chang graduated magna cum laude from Georgia State University College of Law in May 2018, where he received top grades in Criminal Law, Civil Procedure, Patent Law, Evidence, and Lawyering Advocacy. He competed in the 2017 AIPLA Giles Sutherland Rich Memorial Moot Court Competition, where he obtained a deeper understanding of the law on 35 U.S.C. § 101 patent subject matter eligibility.
Prior to law school, Mr. Chang earned an MS in Molecular Biosciences and Bioengineering at the University of Hawaii in 2012, where he researched the use of pathogen-associated molecular patterns as potential adjuvants in a malaria vaccine. He received his BS in Physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2003. Between his BS and MS degrees, Mr. Chang helped develop several technologies, including a commercial prototype of a Standing Wave Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence (SW-TIRF) microscope at Nanopoint, Inc., and writing the software to calculate the white matter to gray matter ratio in a brain, obtained from the signals of an MRI machine. This software is now incorporated into MRI machines made by Siemens.
