BIOGRAPHY

As a qualified IP and Commercialisation Administrator, Satwant is responsible for the management and maintenance of the in-house Intellectual Property Management System with an emphasis on information retrieval and reporting regarding the Rothamsted Research Patent Portfolio. The above entails a close working relationship with Patent Attorney firms, Renewals Agencies and Rothamsted scientists to initiate, negotiate and develop patent filings through prosecution leading to the potential commercialisation of patent applications. With a strong commercial background in Business/Medical Information Management, reinforced with an MSc in Information Management and a BSc in Physiology, Entomology and Parasitology, Satwant also has commercial experience in the chemical, oil/gas, construction and medical environment. Before joining Rothamsted Research she worked for the Wellcome Trust in the collation and presentation of historical medical information gathered from the Wellcome collection and recognised international academic bodies. A previous role as Business Information Manager with BP Oil & Gas has enabled a valuable understanding of information gathering and reporting to monitor clients, competitors and industries.
