Lauren Boodhoo

Manager, Intellectual Property

Lauren Boodhoo guides researchers on all IP issues. She oversees the invention disclosure and assessment process for patentability or other form of IP protection. Lauren helps researchers develop IP strategies to protect their innovations and manages the process for obtaining IP protection. Researchers rely on her guidance on IP clauses in agreements. She also helps draft agreements such as licence agreements, so that inventors can get their innovations to market. Lauren is responsible for preparing draft IP-related policies and procedures and managing IP-related funded projects.

A former Foreign Service Officer, Lauren spent several years at the Permanent Mission of Trinidad and Tobago to the United Nations office in Geneva, where she managed trade, intellectual property and human rights matters. She holds a master’s degree in commercial and corporate law.

She obtained her Legal Education Certificate from the Hugh Wooding Law School in 2006 and is a member of both AUTM (formerly known as the Association of University Technology Managers) and the Licensing Executives’ Society (USA & Canada), two leading professional associations in the field of intellectual property protection and commercialisation.
