Timothy D. Babatz is a patent agent specializing in life sciences, including biotechnology, molecular biology, genetics, genomics, and molecular diagnostics. He is involved in preparation and prosecution of patent applications and post-grant proceedings for the firm’s life sciences clients.

During his PhD research, Timothy studied the biogenesis pathway of the human nuclear scaffold protein lamin A, mutations of which cause the premature aging disorder Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome. He investigated the functional impact of disease-causing mutations of lamin A on its interaction with ZMPSTE24, a protease critical to its biogenesis. He also has experience in human transposon biology, high-throughput sequencing, whole-genome assays, and synthetic biology. Timothy won a Ruth L. Kirschstein Predoctoral National Research Service Award from the National Institutes of Health and the Isaac Morris Hay and Lucille Elizabeth Hay Graduate Fellowship Award from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Department of Cell Biology.
