I am an independent editor of molecular biology manuscripts. I read and understand every word of your manuscript or grant and edit it, to optimize English and clear logical presentation, in a Word manuscript in track changes mode with comments bubbles, just like a professional colleague reviewer. Before becoming a freelancer in January 2015 I was a lecturer and PI at Newcastle University’s Institute of Genetic Medicine, in the north of England, for two and a half years, writing and gaining a Marie Curie fellowship and publishing from my lab. Before that, in France from 2010-2012, I worked on splice regulation in stem cells and published in Nature Communications among others. Before that I gained data presentation skills as the scientific manager responsible for publishing results for a ten million dollar Genome Canada project to analyze alternative splicing genomewide in cancer, with many first author publications including Nature Structural and Molecular Biology, over my three years there. My scientific career started working on alternative splicing as a control mechanism in spermatogenesis, through post docs in Newcastle and Edinburgh and a PhD from Leicester in 2000.
Julian Venables – founder, Science Sense
‘Julian’s writing style just helped us get a complex story-line [Patch repair of deep wounds by mobilized fascia – Nature Dec 2019; Vol 576, issue 7786, pages 287-292] across for publication in Nature. We have been working with Julian and with Science Sense for over two years on multiple research articles and grants and we appreciate his strong scientific background, which allows for comprehensible input into the different steps of the writing process. In short, Julian provides tremendous scientific writing support, also within tight scheduled deadlines. For example, for our Nature Cell Biology article [Two succeeding fibroblastic lineages drive dermal development and the transition from regeneration to scarring – NCB, Apr 2018;20(4):422-431] we received explicit notes from the reviewers about how ‘beautifully written’ the manuscript was’.
