I learned to write and review papers as a PhD student at UCSD, a postdoc at Salk Institute, and on the job as a grant writer at City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center (see My Bio). My primary lab experience was in neuronal development, but I have extensive experience preparing grants and papers relevant to cancer and chromatin remodeling, among many other topics.
- In 2019 clients requested my help on manuscripts relevant to protein methylation, nuclear architecture, lncRNA biochemistry, neutrophil generation, HSC/ESC/iPSC activity, the cancer metabolome, mouse models of heart failure/cancer/diabetes, histone demethylation, GBM therapy, and osteoclast activity (just to name a few)!
- Those papers were submitted to: Circulation, eLife, Blood, Science, Molecular Cell, Cancer Cell, Experimental Dermatology, Scientific Reports, Journal of Clinical Investigation, Nature and PLOS One, among others.
- Clients asked for help on NIH grant proposals (R01 and R21), project pitches to NSF, and proposals or LOIs to private funders including the ACS, Doris Duke, STOP Cancer, and the Melanoma Research Foundation, among others.
- Also, I helped prepare promotion packages and job applications, write abstracts for meetings, edit Author Summaries showcasing successful papers, and craft persuasive and concise rebuttal letters to accompany resubmissions.
- Already in the first half of 2020 I have edited a fellowship submitted to the Rally Foundation and papers to Cell and Nature Genetics. I am now planning to write a large block of web content for a San Diego research institute.
