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.
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.
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.
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.
