Jiazhong (Jason) Luo, Ph.D., practices in the area of intellectual property. Dr. Luo has more than a decade of industry experience in materials science, chemistry and nanotechnologies, including research and development work and project management. He developed and commercialized several new technologies and products of polymers and nanomaterials, especially for electric, electronic, optoelectronic and semiconductor applications. He had working experience in international collaboration with Japanese companies. Dr. Luo is an inventor of eight U.S.-issued patents and has five pending U.S. patent applications. He has also authored 15 peer-reviewed research papers and one legal paper.
Dr. Luo has represented clients in patent prosecutions in the areas of chemistry, material science, polymer science, nanotechnology, semiconductors, optoelectronic materials & devices, pharmaceutical compositions, and bioanalysis. He has drafted and prosecuted patent applications on pharmaceutical compounds, and has assisted patentability, freedom-to-operate, and due diligence analyses in the pharmaceutical field.
Dr. Luo earned a Ph.D. and an M.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from The Ohio State University. He also holds an M.S. in Polymer Chemistry and Physics and a B.S. in Chemistry from Nankai University in Tianjin, China. Dr. Luo graduated from Temple University Beasley School of Law with a J.D., cum laude, in 2013. He also received the Robert C. Podwil Memorial Prize, which is awarded annually to the graduate who demonstrates excellent academic performance and plans to practice in the area of intellectual property.
He is a native speaker of Chinese and speaks fluent English, and has studied Japanese and German.
