Marina’s core area of expertise lies within the field of organic chemistry with a particular focus on pharmaceutical drugs and imaging agents for diagnostic medicine such as x-ray imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, contrast enhanced ultrasound and nuclear medicine through radioactive tracers. She has significant experience in developing patent portfolios around new therapeutic and diagnostic products and also advises on both patentability and freedom to operate aspects related thereto. Marina’s experience in managerial roles developed in multinational pharma companies, such as GlaxoSmithKline and Bracco Group, allows her to fully understand strategic IP needs of companies alike. At the same time, Marina’s attitude to work with her clients lends itself to working integrally with small and medium sized companies or research centres in order to develop their IP estate and derive maximum return from their IP spend by implementing the teachings learnt in a multinational environment.
Marina’s scientific background includes a Doctorate in Chemistry from the University of Milan and research undertaken at the Sigma-Tau Prassis Institute for three years as a senior scientist looking for finding new antihypertensive drugs. She is the author of scientific publications and an inventor of patents. Her experience as a scientist allows her to have a good understanding of the scientific environment in various chemical fields.
Marina joined Murgitroyd in 2011 at the Milan office. In 2010 Marina was elected as a Council Member of the Italian Industrial Property Consultants Institute. She is actively involved in lecturing on IP related issues, including being a CEIPI tutor in the two-year Basic Training in European Patent Law Course held in Milan and seminars at the University of Milan.
