About

During a round-table discussion with breast cancer patients, I realized that patients–and others without training in health-related sciences–have a deep desire and need to understand what the results of scientific research mean for them. Unfortunately, research results are often communicated in a language that is understood only by other scientists in that specific field.

Through discussions with colleagues, I realized that many research results also are not being communicated effectively to other scientists and funding organizations. This means important research is left unrecognized and unfunded.

How can I help bridge the communication gaps?

I understand biological research. My doctoral dissertation research focused on elucidating the molecular functions of the brain protein centaurin alpha. My postdoctoral research focused on designing and investigating the immunotherapeutic potential of retargeted adenovirus-based vectors for treating breast cancer and melanoma. So, I have scientific expertise in a range of fields.

Perhaps most importantly, I can communicate the details of biological research effectively to a variety of audiences. During my time at the bench, I published several first-author manuscripts and won numerous awards for poster and oral presentations given to scientific and general audiences. My experience as an adjunct college professor and professional editor have sharpened my communication skills as well. So, I can make sure your target audience understands the research.

I can help you by providing writing and editing that is clear, accurate, and on time.
