Mark D. Marsden, Ph.D. is an associate in our San Diego office.
Prior to joining the firm, Dr. Marsden conducted post-doctoral research at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle investigating chromosomal regulatory elements of human serpin genes. Dr. Marsden earned his Ph.D. in the laboratory of Sir Dai Rees at the National Institute for Medical Research, Mill Hill, London.
Dr. Marsden joined the firm in 2007.
