Yi Lan Chen

Research Coordinator

Having studied and trained as a medical doctor (M.D.) and qualified as a patent attorney in China, I joined the venture back in 2008 after more than 6 years of practice in a top-tier Chinese patent firm. I was prompted by a wish to bring innovations from conception to realization. Since that time, my role has evolved from patent development, inventor recruiting and invention sourcing, to technology, IP and market research and analysis, delivering high quality reports and insights for major clients, while supporting and managing various innovation activities. I’ve also had the opportunities of working at both Beijing and Sydney offices. There have been challenges along the way but I enjoy the journey I started 10 years ago and see it leading to a bright future.
