Eneda’s passion for science, law, and the rigor and strategic thinking essential to both, led her to join Durie Tangri. Eneda began her legal career in the patent group at Morrison and Foerster, where she worked on matters for companies ranging from small startups to the most successful biotechnology companies in the world. Eneda’s work at Morrison and Foerster centered on drafting and prosecuting patents, as well as evaluating patent strategy and risk.
Prior to law school, Eneda was a scientist and process engineer for Cellular Dynamics International, Inc., where she worked on stem cell regulation and differentiation into the cardiovascular lineage. She received her Ph.D. from Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in biomedical sciences. While in graduate school, Eneda was a Fellow with the Innovation and Commercialization Office, where she screened new inventions, performed preliminary market analysis, determined patentability, and provided recommendations for IP strategy for emerging companies. Eneda is deeply familiar with cell and molecular biology, immunology, bioinformatics, and the use of stochastic processes and tools for diagnostics.
Eneda earned her J.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, where she was an editor for the Technology Law Journal and a member of the Business Law Journal.
In her free time, Eneda enjoys spending time with her son, artisanal cheese making, and skiing. She is fluent in Albanian and Italian.
