Yara Huppelschoten

Trainee patent attorney
Driven by my passion and curiosity for new technologies, I have gained experience in many aspects of chemistry, including organic, peptide, and protein chemistry. In 2022, I joined NLO as a trainee patent attorney. I plan to use my experience and knowledge to achieve the best protections for companies’ inventions.


  • Chemistry
  • Pharma
  • Food

After completing my MSc in Drug Discovery, I started as an industrial PhD student in the field of peptide and protein chemistry. My focus was on the chemical synthesis of proteins and protein modifications. During my PhD, I became intrigued by the value of intellectual property for the industry, which pulled me in the direction of trainee patent attorney. I look at science with an analytical eye and enjoy finding creative solutions for problems. I plan to use both qualities in my role as a trainee patent attorney at NLO.
