Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox Selected by 15 Year Old Winner of Intel International Science and Engineering Fair
Date:6/26/2012

WASHINGTON, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox P.L.L.C., an intellectual property law firm in Washington, DC, has been selected to represent Jack Andraka as he pursues patent protection for an innovative diagnostic test for pancreatic cancer.  Last month, the fifteen year old was honored with the first place prize at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.

After a family friend died from pancreatic cancer, Mr. Andraka was inspired to make contributions that would improve the detection of early stages of the disease. After contacting close to 200 researchers within labs at Johns Hopkins University, the University of Maryland, and the National Institutes of Health – and receiving 197 rejection letters – he began working in the lab of Dr. Anirban Maitra, Professor of Pathology, Oncology and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.  The pancreatic cancer diagnostic test he developed is simpler to use, faster and less expensive than the diagnostic tests already in use.  

"We are so honored to be representing Jack as he pursues patent protection for his new diagnostic test for pancreatic cancer," said Judith U. Kim, a director in the Biotechnology/Chemical Practice Group who will lead the firm's work on behalf of Mr. Andraka.  "This young man has already made significant contributions to the greater biomedical community and we are very enthusiastic about helping him secure patent protection for his intellectual property."

Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox P.L.L.C. – Strategists and Advisors specializing in the protection, transfer and enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights.  Founded in 1978 and based in Washington, DC, the firm has over 150 patent attorneys, agents and technical specialists representing a broad range of clients, including emerging and established companies, venture capital firms, universities and select individuals.
