Prior to joining Foley, she worked as an associate at a premier intellectual property firm in New York, where she focused her practice on Hatch Waxman litigation. While in law school, she worked as a patent agent in the intellectual property department of a global law firm, where she assisted in the preparation and prosecution of U.S. and foreign patent applications and patentability, infringement, and freedom to operate opinions in diverse biotechnology and pharmaceutical areas. Also, during law school, she worked for two startup biotech companies, where she was responsible for overseeing intellectual property portfolios, in addition to working with outside counsel in patent prosecution, business development, and licensing matters.

Dr. Guhaniyogi’s doctoral work involved protein X-ray crystallography and other biochemical and biophysical techniques to investigate functional-structural characteristics of key signaling proteins involved in bacterial motility, important in therapeutic development of bacterial diseases. Following her Ph.D., she held postdoctoral positions at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) and a biotech company. Her postdoctoral research focused on protein X-ray crystallography to elucidate structural aspects of a human protease implicated in a fatal infantile central nervous system disorder and proteomics approach for biomarker discovery from cancer cell lines.
