Sabrina Solouki joined Ropes & Gray as a technical advisor in the intellectual property department.
Sabrina will receive her PhD in Immunology from Cornell University in January 2020. Her research focuses on the development of CD8+ memory T cells, where she discovered different parameters responsible for regulating T-cell mediated memory. At Cornell, Sabrina also interned at the Center for Technology and Licensing to help identify commercial opportunities for technologies in the life sciences. Sabrina is a strong advocate for science communication and literacy, as exemplified by her completion of the Engagement in Public Communication of Science & Technology certificate program.
