Peter is responsible for overseeing both the QED and Phase 1 Ventures commercialization programs.  The QED program works with academic researchers to de-risk their technologies in order to attract follow-on investment or expedite a tech-transfer event.  Phase 1 Ventures focuses on long horizon technologies and increasing the value of IP assets which have been placed in Small Business Entities and are pursuing non-dilutive funding opportunities. Prior to this, Peter worked for two start-ups focusing on business and legal issues.  Peter began his career as a corporate attorney at an AmLaw 50 law firm in Washington, DC. Peter holds a BS in Biology for The American University and a MS in Biotechnology and a JD, both from the University of Pennsylvania.
