Jeffrey Sunman, Ph.D.

Director, Intellectual Property

Jeff joined Precision from the biotechnology patents group at Alston and Bird LLP, where he managed patent portfolios for a diverse base of biotech clients and universities. He has a B.S. in biology from Stetson University, a Ph.D. in pharmaceutical sciences from Mercer University, and completed postdoctoral fellowships at UNC Chapel Hill and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. In his current role, Jeff works closely with Precision scientists and the CSO to manage Precision’s IP portfolio and develop future patent strategies. Occasionally, he’ll even make a good suggestion during lab meetings. When he isn’t drafting applications, Jeff enjoys doing science projects with his kids and chasing them through all of the local museums.
