John P. Masters, MS Medical Physics, BSBME

My interest in patent law began as an innovative student at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. Once I became aware of the importance of patents, I knew that my role would one day involve helping inventors attain their own IP protection. I gained expertise by first inventing systems such as robotic service dogs and hippotherapy quantitative analysis tools. My specialization grew from general biomedical engineering into electromechanical systems that require advanced computer science skills. My joy of complex systems led me to the National University of Ireland, Galway where I studied medical physics and completed my thesis on metal artifact reduction algorithms in Computed Tomography. I furthered my knowledge over medical devices and systems by working in industry. I have helped bring devices such as stents, kidney stone retrieval baskets, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound ablation systems, blood glucose sensors, and CT tubes to market.

I work with our knowledgeable HFZ team in executing legal strategies that push technology forward for our clients. AT HFZ, I wish to help innovators bring their concepts to a protected reality so that their work can continue to improve the world.
