Overview

Mandeep brings several years of cutting edge experience as a cancer researcher to her practice with L&A’s life sciences group.  She assists in the preparation and prosecution of U.S. and foreign patent applications, performs freedom to operate and patentability analyses, and conducts due diligence reviews.

Mandeep received her Ph.D. from Dartmouth College, where she worked in the laboratory of Dr. Michael D. Cole in the Program in Experimental and Molecular Medicine. Her Ph.D. thesis focused on the mechanisms of gene regulation by the oncogene c-Myc, and provided insights into novel repression and transactivation mechanisms. Her post-doctoral work at MIT’s Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research focused on the development of a humanized mouse model of de novo Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) with an autologous human immune system, and the generation of TCR-like CAR-T cells recognizing an AML neoantigen.

Mandeep is a co-inventor on one U.S. patent, and she has authored peer-reviewed articles which are published in the journals Cancer Research and PLoS Genetics.
