Scott E. Allen, Ph.D.
Scott comes from a background of nine years in academic organic chemistry and chemical biology laboratories. He received a B.S. in chemistry from Penn State University and a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania. Scott’s graduate research focused on the computational modeling of organocatalytic processes and the development of methodologies for the asymmetric oxidative dimerization of phenols. Scott is a first author on an number of scientific publications, including an intensive review on copper-mediated oxidative organic chemistry. Following his graduate studies, Scott received postdoctoral training at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, where he used molecular dynamics and docking simulations to examine sequence-dependent secondary structure effects in bioengineered natural products.
In his position at Riverside, Scott supports the preparation and prosecution of patent applications, as well as patentability and freedom-to-operate reviews, in the field of chemistry, including organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), pharmaceutical formulations, and biochemistry.
