Dr. Mary Maxon, Ph.D, Deputy Vice Chair at CIRM, is way too young to have that glorious mane of snow-white hair.She looks like someone who would be asked for her I.D. card if she went to buy a bottle of wine for a dinner party.I even asked her about it one time, (I know, I know, too rude-but I was curious, that is my only excuse) and she said it had been white since she was a teenager.
Dr. Maxon writes the Intellectual Property policy.She attends every meeting, carries home the endless stacks of legalese documents, reads them all until she understands, and then uses writing skills to bring together what everyone is trying to say.
Her Christmas vacation was writing the Intellectual Property policy for non-profit institutions.
