Steven C. Pageau, Ph.D.

Dr. Steven Pageau’s practice includes U.S. and foreign patent preparation, prosecution, and strategic counseling across a range of scientific and technical areas, including immunology, virology, and biologic medical products and devices.

His scientific background is in the field of cellular and molecular biology with particular emphasis and experience in immunology, calcified tissue biology, cancer biology, in vivo delivery of small interfering (si) RNAs, tissue engineering, and three-dimensional (3D) cell culture models.

Dr. Pageau’s thesis studies focused on the development of a 3D model of the human conducting airway for the study of respiratory diseases. His research revealed the importance of the bronchial stroma in the pathogenesis and progression of lung cancer. Using histological, biomechanical, biochemical and gene expression analyses, Dr. Pageau demonstrated that cellular and acellular components of the bronchus act synergistically to promote a neoplastic phenotype. In addition to this work, he has experience in the development and tissue-specific delivery of therapeutic siRNAs and cancer immunotherapeutics. Dr. Pageau's immunology research involved studies of T-cell mediated immunity and the engineering of humanized therapeutic antibodies.
