Laura M. McLane

Technical Specialist

Laura McLane supports patent attorneys and patent agents in preparing and prosecuting patent applications to protect clients’ intellectual property. She draws on both her doctorate in genetics and molecular biology from Emory University School of Medicine as well as practical research experience in a university lab for her work.

Prior to joining Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr, Laura worked as a research scientist for the University of Pennsylvania Institute of Immunology, where she focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms that regulate transcription factor function in the context of T-cell immunology. One extension of this work was research to understand how current cancer immunotherapies that specifically target inhibitory/exhaustion receptor pathways alter the expression and function of T-bet, Eomes, and other key transcription factors involved in critical T-cell function. Her research experience includes molecular biological, cell biological, biochemical, as well as immunological assays in humans, mice, drosophila, yeast, and in vitro cell models. 

She was also a postdoctoral fellow and postdoctoral researcher in Penn’s Department of Microbiology.
