Barish Ozdamar's practice focuses on US and foreign patent prosecution for life science, biotechnology and pharmaceutical fields, patent portfolio management, patentability assessment, non-infringement and invalidity opinions, due diligence, pre-suit investigation and litigation support for life sciences matters.

Prior to joining the firm, Dr. Ozdamar was a Post-Doctoral Fellow at Cornell University Weill Medical College, where he investigated the role of cholesterol metabolism in atherosclerosis and stroke. During his graduate tenure at the University of Toronto, Dr. Ozdamar's research focused on cancer biology and molecular pathways regulating tumor metastasis. He has also been the recipient of Post-Doctoral Fellowships from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. Dr. Ozdamar's publication record includes four authorships in the journal Science.
