We are pleased to announce the appointment of André Santos as an Associate of ABG Intellectual Property.
André holds a PhD in Organic Chemistry from the Complutense University of Madrid with a European mention. He joined ABG IP in 2016 and has since become a key player for the Departments of Chemistry & Materials, and Pharmacy. His main tasks include patent drafting, prosecution, FTOs and opinion work in the pharmaceutical, organic, inorganic and nanotechnology fields.

We take this opportunity to thank him for his commitment and involvement and to wish him every success in his new role.
