Dr. Madio is an experienced patent agent working largely on patent preparation and prosecution, particularly in the areas of physics, mechanical, electrical, electromechanical, and optical technologies. Dr. Madio has prepared U.S. and foreign patent applications for large corporations, start-ups, and universities. In addition, he has assisted in the preparation of legal opinions, including freedom to operate and invalidity. Dr. Madio enjoys working with inventors, in-house counsel, and other IP professionals to protect a client’s intellectual assets.
Dr. Madio brings more than 20 years of experience in research, engineering, and real-time analysis and interpretation of client data to his work as a patent agent. He is comfortable building laboratory hardware as well as inventing novel measurement methods and writing software used to process the data. An award-winning communicator as well as a patented inventor, Dr. Madio enjoys working with inventors, in-house counsel, and other intellectual property stakeholders. He also understands the importance of developing good working relationships with patent examiners, some of whom may handle multiple applications from a single client.
While Dr. Madio’s work as a patent agent has focused on the areas of physics, mechanical, electrical, electromechanical, and optical technologies, his expertise extends to such other areas as automotive, image and data processing, computing, oil and gas, navigation, medical devices, medical imaging, and sensor technologies. In fact, he has handled patent matters in each of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Technology Centers.
Prior to joining Leydig, Voit & Mayer, Dr. Madio carried out research in academic, governmental, and industrial laboratories. At the National Institutes of Health, he helped pioneer a means of gene therapy that combines magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with focused ultrasound as well as improved functional MRI brain imaging. While with Schlumberger, Dr. Madio developed novel nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) hardware and methods for performing subterranean measurements for the oil and gas industry.
