Science Writing

Helping to Communicate Science

Beth Schachter, PhD, can work with you on writing projects that engage and inform diverse audiences about topics in biomedicine. Whether you need a narrative of a biomedical conference, an articulation of your institution's strategic plan, a background text to accompany a policy report or a profile of a prominent researcher, Beth collaborates with you to achieve your goals.

A former principal investigator and head of an academic research lab, Beth grasps the complexities of scientific processes. Combining this expertise with her innate curiosity and friendliness, she quickly gains the trust of those she interviews. Then, as an experienced communicator, she produces a compelling account, organizing the details around the main science story in order to engage and educate your audience.
