Erik Broströmer

PATENT CONSULTANT

PROFILE AND FAST FACTS

After ten years of experiences abroad (in China and the US), I enjoy facing new challenges and working in a dynamic environment. I was the first western PhD in nature sciences to graduate from Peking University and prior to joining Ström & Gulliksson, I worked as postdoc using single-molecule microscopy techniques at Harvard University.

A passion for innovation

With a strong multidisciplinary research background, personal start-up experiences and a passion for innovation, I look forward to technical discussions in the field of life science and biotechnology.

Technical understanding is essential

I know firsthand how important teamwork and meaningful discussions are for creativity and project momentum. I believe that the same is true for the technology transfer process, that in-depth technical understanding is essential for good discussion, to pinpoint the invention and to formulate the protection for your ideas and innovations.

Experience from product development

I have expertise in the areas of biochemistry, molecular biology and biotechnology, but also high throughput technologies in life science, drug development and food industry. As co-founder and former CTO of a spin-off biotech company in China, I have been active in product development processes from lab consumables to automated imaging systems.
