S. Reid Long, Ph.D. joined Parker Highlander after finishing a graduate program in chemistry at The University of Texas at Austin. Before starting his graduate studies, Reid received a dual bachelor’s degree from The University of Texas at Austin with a B.S. in Chemistry and a B.A. in Plan II. During his graduate program, Reid worked in the area of molecular recognition looking at the driving forces behind molecular attractions and the development of functional molecules assemblies. As an organic chemist, Reid has extensive experience synthesizing and characterizing small molecules. Since joining Parker Highlander, Reid has worked on the drafting and prosecution of patents focus on numerous different areas of chemistry including small molecule therapeutics, diagnostics and polymers. Reid has also worked on patentability and freedom to operate analysis and has experience managing portfolios of patent families.
Prior to joining Parker Highlander, Reid received his Ph.D. at The University of Texas at Austin in Chemistry. His research focused on organic and bioorganic chemistry where he worked on molecular recognition between different molecules and the development of diagnostics for chemical properties. During graduate school, Reid authored two scientific manuscripts on his research.
