Any other PhDs in Immunology?

So who else is getting their Ph.D in Immunology and trying this patent law thing?  I'm interested in either going to a law firm or to USPTO.  Any tips on which is better? Thanks

Immunology is worthless in the USTPO.  That is a very very soft degree.   Good luck.

What a ridiculous statement. A background in immunology is entirely appropriate for a career in patent law, especially for someone who wants to work for a company such as Genentech or for a firm that represents such a company.  And there are plenty of immunologists working as examiners at the PTO.
 
But even though immunology is an entirely appropriate background, the original poster may still have trouble getting a first job.  This is simply because the supply of applicants with PhDs in the biological sciences is currently greater than the demand.

I would like to see what Nottogood considers a strong degree in science, he's probably some unemployed botanist.  Both Immunology and Neurology are the most poorly understood sciences out there.  With that said, there's plenty to be discovered and protected.
