How Can an Experienced Medical Writer/Editor Help You?
With all of the other demands on a scientific investigator, finding time to actually conduct experiments and analyze data is difficult at best. Finding time to write manuscripts and grant applications is difficult, too. Finding time to do all of it well is imperative to obtain and keep funding, but it can seem nearly impossible!
If your article or grant application is well written, readers and reviewers are more likely to understand your research and why it’s important. That can lead to more publications, citations, and funding. An experienced writer with a strong background in scientific research knows the science lingo and can help you communicate your research results accurately to many different audiences.
A writer with a scientific background also understands how much of your life has gone into this research and exactly how important it is to communicate it effectively and accurately every time.

Editing Services for Grant Applications: In addition to editing grant applications for basic grammar and “readability,” I strive to ensure that each application meets the NIH requirements for rigor and reproducibility. By applying the scientific knowledge I gained during my own time at the bench and beyond, as well as information culled from reviewers’ responses over the past several years, I can also provide feedback regarding content and organization.
Editing Services for Manuscripts: I will edit your manuscript to ensure clarity and to meet the style of the journal to which you are submitting.
