SCIENCE WRITING 

scientific publications, posters and abstracts

I have a PhD in Immunology and a broad background in life sciences. During the last years I specialized in the fields of immunology, virology, aging research & neurology. My portfolio in written science communication includes but is not limited to peer-reviewed scientific publications, grant proposals, abstracts and posters for scientific and medical conferences, clinical documents (investigator's brochures), newsletters, blogs and articles. I also started my own journey into the world of writing about science for children. My blog tells you more about this personal endeavor.

FROM IMMUNOLOGY TO CELIAC DISEASE

When you have celiac disease you have to avoid eating gluten at any cost. This usually harmless food ingredient causes a severe immune reaction in people with this genetic predisposition. For my PhD theses, I wrote this introduction to celiac disease. I 'zoomed into' on the topic by first explaining how the immune system works. This work is clearly written for immunologists (my audience) and therefore uses a many technical terms.

SCIENTIFIC PUBLICATION ABOUT A POSSIBLE NEW DRUG FOR FLU 

I co-created the storyline of a scientific manuscript on flu, reviewed and selected the data, generated most of the figures and schematics and was one of the main contributors in writing the publication. The primary audience of the publication are scientists.
