Write Good Science Stuff - I'm a science writer who specializes in making movies and animations that illustrate medicine and biology for physicians and patients alike. Science literacy for everyone is critical for all of us. See samples of full animations and scripts below. 

  • Autoimmune Disorders — Write Good Science Stuff - Autoimmune disorders  are a complex array of diseases with one underlying cause - the immune system.  Treating a disease which arises from one's own system without damaging that system is difficult.  Research is beginning to yield more targeted options rather than just global suppression.  On the left are two mechanism of action videos I wrote for Gilenya - a recent entrée into the more targeted treatments for multiple sclerosis. I have also written extensively on psoriatic arthritis and diabetes mellitus.  Clinically, I have experience with Hashimoto's, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and alopecia areataPSORIATIC ARTHRITIS (PsA)- PsA for nurses (unbranded)- Enbrel "build a patient" and MOA video transcriptMULTIPLE SCLEROSIS TRANSCRIPTS- MOA for physicians video transcript- MOA for patients video transcript 
  • Infectious Diseases — Write Good Science Stuff - I wrote all of GENENTECH's physician education materials for their virology campaign.  A smattering of these included the videos in the below left - as well as:a websitean interactive physician presentationa primer on pharmacokineticsBACTERIAL INFECTIONSPfizer contracted me to write two videos.  The first is an overview of all types of bacterial infections & resistance to drugs and the second is an MOA for Tygacil - their broad-spectrum IV antibiotic- Bacterial infection scripts (annotated)- production copy for v.o.HEPATITIS CPatient friendly booklets for navigating the long course of Hep C treatment are below. These were helpful for patients and nurses - it's a very long drug protocol.Understanding Your JourneyManaging Your JourneyAccomplishing Your Journey  
  • Immunology — Write Good Science Stuff - Sanofi engaged me to create "speaker bureaus" for their transplant anti-rejection drug Thymoglobulin.  These power points are used by physicians to teach other physicians about disease states and what's new in research. - T-cell and Antibody Mediated Rejection in Solid Organ Transplant- What's New in Transplant - Cutting Edge Diagnostic & DetectionThese were very well received by the medical community, so I became the scientific director for Thymoglobulin at Ethos agency.ALLERGIC DISEASEMerck had need of a similar speaker deck - I did the visuals in this deck as well INHIBITORSRejection of hemophilia treatment is a dangerous immune reaction. I've written:- Videos at left cover that cover the treatment for it- Patient website on the same  
  • Diabetes & Digestion — Write Good Science Stuff - Diabetic foot ulcers are a tragic but avoidable outcome of long-term diabetes.  Shire hired me to write this website for patients about diabetes management.  The mechanism of disease video at left is part of that site. Below left is an excerpt from  KOL hosted video on Glumetza - an enterically coated metformin.   DIGESTIONOver a few years time, I wrote all the digital materials for Zegerid - an enterically coated omeprazole.  At left, are:- Mechanism of Action Video- A small excerpt from a KOL hosted program
  • Oncology & Hematology — Write Good Science Stuff - At left is the MOD for AMGEN's denosumab.  I've done extensive work across most of their products - including:Enbrel® (etanercept)EPOGEN® (epoetin alfa)Neulasta® (pegfilgrastim)Nplate® (romiplostim)Prolia® (denosumab) / XGEVA® (denosumab)Sensipar® (cinacalcet) I have also done patient and physician education in the hematology space for BAXTER- FEIBA website for physicians- Inhibitors website for patients  NOVARTISI  wrote all of the materials for several of NOVARTIS's Cardiovascular products for two years, including:How the kidneys (not the heart!) determine blood pressure via the RAAS pathway

  • Carin - relief

    I bought this after reading reviews on Amazon. Our cat has been infested with fleas (while on Advantage), and they are all over the house, even after having new carpeting installed (not because of the fleas, but I never would have thought they would still be around). I have the cat on Little City Dogs & Cat Flea Killer capsules and Cat Flea Control Oral Capsules, as well as using the Victor Ultimate Flea Trap, all recommended on Amazon. I can't tell if the spray is helping with fleas in the rug and upholstery, but I discovered that I can use a light spray on my legs and that keeps the fleas away from me!!!!! I am really, really sensitive to the bites, so this has been a great discovery.

  • Mr. P. Leigh - Would defintely buy again

    Awesome roof rails - less than half the price of the big brands and work just as well. I have travelled at 70-80mph on the interstates with no whistle. With my huge carbox on top I do notice less fuel efficiency but this is not really a consideration given the amount of time it is in use. It is easy to set up and take down - even on the Grand Cherokee its a one person job
