Oliver P. Couture, Ph.D.

Oliver joined McKee, Voorhees & Sease, P. L. C. in August 2017 after graduating from George Mason University law school. Prior to law school, Oliver graduated magna cum laude with a B. S. degree from Drake University in Biology and Psychology, and a minor in Biochemistry. It was during his undergraduate years that he began performing research and studied the difference between hypertensive and normotensive resuscitation on the energy status of organs following severe hemorrhage. During and just following his undergraduate years, Oliver also worked for Pioneer Hybrid and Kemin Laboratories, assisting with various research projects and performing quality control. Following his undergraduate degree, Oliver attended Iowa State University as a Multidisciplinary Graduate Education Training Fellow and a Biotechnology Fellow. Oliver received a Ph. D. from Iowa State University in Genetics, and received the Excellence in Research Award and Excellence in Teaching Award. His graduate work included research in the embryonic development of hindbrains in mice, the effects of feed restriction in pigs, and the innate immunity in pigs by utilizing various molecular and bioinformatic techniques. Following graduating, Oliver then started a postdoc at Midwestern University. His postdoc research was focused on studying the changes in expression and the mechanisms of control between normal cells and osteosarcomas. Oliver also helped to mentor students with a wide variety of backgrounds in research.

Following his years of research, Oliver then decided to attend law school to study patent law. He went to the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University. There he focused on intellectual property. While at school, he spent one summer working at Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox PLLC and another summer clerking for the Administrative Patent Judges on the Patent Trial and Appeals Board at the U. S. Patent and Trademark Office.

While not working, Oliver enjoys traveling, kayaking, rafting, camping, and hiking. When he is not out exploring, he also enjoys grilling and cooking, especially Cajun, or catching a movie with friends.
