Ms. Eichner is a technical specialist in the New York office. She has a unique blend of expertise in biochemistry, computational biology, and pharmaceutical sciences. Before joining the firm, she conducted extensive research in the field of structural biology, earning a master’s degree in Biochemistry, and a second master's degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences. She also completed an internship with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), where she gained substantial knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry.
As a Ph.D. candidate in biochemistry (ABD) at the CUNY Graduate Center, she has developed a deep understanding of the complex workings of biological systems. She has investigated several cancer proteins, and applied bioinformatic tools to predict their structure and study their interactions with other macromolecules. Her research findings have been presented at various scientific conferences, both nationally and internationally, and published in reputable journals.
