The US citizen lawyer E. Wackowsky is an expert in international patenting, by virtue of her two degrees (both in Science and in Law) and two decades of activity matured in the biotech district of the Bay Area in California. In addition to her participation in the drafting of the first biotechnology patents held by the biotech giant “Genentech” of San Francisco, she has contributed to train many of the experts who now make up the legal team in charge of the intellectual protection of proprietary research in the field of biotechnology of the same company. Eugenia Wackowsky and her legal office Townsend & Kilpatrick, of which she is herself a partner, gave a big support to the patenting of oncological research, which today is conveyed in the project ISOPROG.

Her international law office has also a network of financiers and investors of big importance for the future growth of the project ISOPROG.
