Medical writing

Vice President
Trust me, I'm a doctor!

In the beginning…

After attaining my MBBS and intercalated BSc (Hons) from King’s College School of Medicine and Dentistry, London, I worked as a physician in the UK before moving to Germany. In 2006, I joined infill as a medical writer, and became a partner in the firm in 2009.

My work at infill

Combined with my experience in a wide range of disease areas, my insights into the needs of healthcare professionals and patients coupled with a burning passion for medical education, inspire me to work enthusiastically on the development of healthcare communication and training programmes. My principal goal is to optimise medical practice by increasing knowledge, confidence and competence in both doctors and patients, with the ultimate aim of improving patient outcomes.

What I love most

Interaction and collaboration with leading international medical experts in order to develop clinically relevant educational resources for a variety of multimedia channels as well as face-to-face events, meetings and presentations.

Senior Medical Writer

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a teacher.  As a child, I loved school and learning and wanted to work in that sort of environment when I grew up. Along the way I also developed a passion for the natural sciences. Ultimately, I decided not to pursue a teaching certificate but did continue on the natural science path with both my under-graduate and graduate degrees. I sort of fell into medical writing about 10 years ago –not really knowing that medical writing was a thing before then. I truly enjoy my job as a medical writer because it allows me to teach natural science concepts through a multitude of means and media. It’s really exciting to take scientific material and present it in a way that is easy to understand and intuitive to use for both patients and medical professionals alike.

Senior Medical Writer
Our knowledge of medicine in human health and disease increases almost exponentially, driven by technical and digital innovations.

My Passion

The impact of medicine on human health is a fascinating area and a field with a constantly growing complexity. Modern basic and clinical research translate into earlier diagnoses and new, more individualised and better therapies with increasing speed. This medical progress is paralleled by the great new options of digital communication, which offer innovative ways for healthcare communication to healthcare professionals and patients.

My Expertise

With a special expertise in cellular biology and molecular genetics, I am able to follow processes of disease pathology and to evaluate methods of clinical and pharmacological interventions. As a medical writer, I have worked in various therapeutic areas such as cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, metabolic disease and oncology.

My Experience

I have almost 10 years of experience in medical writing and editing. Since joining infill in 2008, I have developed various educational materials for physicians, healthcare professionals and patients. In addition, I am co-author of several print- and eBooks, e.g. for the management of atrial fibrillation or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or training tools for hypertension, diabetes, immunology and oncology.

My Background

I have a PhD in human molecular genetics and a certified Diploma in cell biology from the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelm-University in Bonn (Germany). In addition, I completed a certified 6-month training as a scientific journalist. During my PhD thesis, I collaborated and worked at a bio-pharmaceutical company (Millennium Pharmaceuticals) in Boston, USA.

Senior Medical Writer
You have been assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved.

As a senior medical writer, my job involves preparing, writing and editing communication and education materials in a variety of indications, with a focus on COPD and interstitial lung diseases (ILDs), especially IPF. Be it training materials for the field force, continuing medical education modules for healthcare professionals, booth support and summary of congress findings at scientific conferences or developing materials for patient education and support, I have been able to create attractive, user-friendly concepts with a strong digital focus. Some of them have been as innovative as eBooks, apps or tablet-based networking platforms for patient-case studies.

Medical Writer

A medical writer and project manager at infill, I work across indications, primarily as lead medical writer for oncology and respiratory. I am also involved in cardiovascular and  immuno-biology indications, and have expertise in digital content, meeting reports, multimedia content, eLearning and more. I look forward to working with you!

My background is in Biology and after receiving a PhD in Molecular Biomedicine from Bonn University, I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in Seattle, USA, for 5 years. To gain a better understanding of workflows in clinical research and pharmaceutical industry I took an advanced training to qualify as Clinical Research Associate in accordance to ICH-GCP. Through my work, I hope to contribute significantly towards the translation of advances in scientific research into clinical practice for the benefit of patients.
