Dr. Carin Miller, a registered U.S. patent attorney at Johnson, Marcou, Isaacs & Nix (JMIN), specializes in prosecuting biotechnology, agricultural biology, molecular biology, biochemical, cell, agriculture and animal-related inventions. She has intellectual property experience in biotechnology, chemical, biochemical, medical arts and mechanical. She has worked on patents related to small molecules, drug delivery, pharmaceuticals, cell-based therapies for human and veterinary treatment, recombinant nucleic acids and proteins, biological sensors, molecular assays, cell lines, transgenic animals and plants, and glucose responsive vehicle control devices. Miller also has experience with trademark preparation and prosecution, as well as licensing and due diligence issues.
Prior to her career in law, Miller worked for ProGenetics LLC, a start-up biotech company, which developed transgenic animals and produced proteins for hemophilia treatment. Previously, she worked as a student research assistant and taught Virginia Tech’s courses in animal genetics (both Mendelian and molecular genetics) and animal science. Her thesis focused on understanding the effect of long-term genetic selection for a single train on, inter alia, the gene expression profile of intestinal nutrient transporter proteins and food intake regulators during chicken development. As a John Lee Pratt Animal Nutrition Ph.D. Fellow, Miller examined the balance between peptide transporter and amino acid transporter expression in the enterocyte. She also worked to generate transgenic chicken models to understand the roles of particular genes in the growth and development of chickens.
Miller has presented her scientific research at major international scientific conferences, authored and co-authored scientific and law review articles, and spoken at several CLE events, including CincyBio 2013, the Dayton Intellectual Property Law Association September 2013 Meeting, and the Georgia Bar Association IP Bootcamp 2013.
Miller earned her juris doctorate at the University of Dayton School of Law in Dayton, Ohio. She received a doctorate, Master of Science and Bachelor of Science in Animal and Poultry Sciences at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va.
