Skills & Services
I am a writer and editor with more than 25 years of experience in medical and scientific research in industry, health-related non-governmental organisations, and science publication. I am a native speaker of English, with a keen appreciation of precision, nuance, and clarity, and I am fully conversant with ICH guidelines and guidance for medical publication. My services include
Writing:
• Drafting of initial documents
• Full development of documents, including revisions
Editing and reviewing:
• Substantive editing and content critique
• Editing for non-native speakers of English
• Reworking to incorporate reviewers' recommendations
• Copyediting and proofreading
• Technical editing and quality control

Consulting:
• Writing support for manuscript authors
• “Content consultancy” – evaluating appropriateness for a given audience
Please feel free to contact me to discuss your specific needs: should I be unable to meet them, I offer referrals to colleagues in a variety of research-related fields.

I PREPARE DOCUMENTS IN ENGLISH ONLY.
Subjects
I am familiar with most major therapeutic areas, with particular expertise in autoimmune and inflammatory disease, rheumatology, neurology and neurodegenerative disease, infectious disease (including HIV/AIDS), gastroenterology, endocrinology and metabolism, gynaecology and obstetrics, oncology, cardiology and parasitology.
My focus is in medical writing; however, I am comfortable writing about most scientific topics and I learn new material quickly. I specialise in adapting documents to particular audiences, from experts to laypeople.
My experience includes documents for clinical research (protocols, consent forms, investigator’s brochures), regulatory dossiers (clinical study reports, clinical summaries and overviews, briefing books, and responses to health authority questions), manuscripts for publication, conference materials, and presentations of health and scientific information for the general public.

This list is not exhaustive: please feel free to ask me about other kinds of documents.
