Hi! I am Mariana, a biomedical and health freelance copywriter.
I want to help you communicate scientific data in a concise and friendly way.
What can I do for you
I can help you improve your sales, increase awareness in your reader, or enhance your reputation.
How I do it? I research your topic with the rigour and passion of a scientist. In addition, I use copywriting techniques to write texts or copy that informs and inspires your reader.
A bit about my scientific career
I am a biochemist, with 15+ years of experience in biomedical research.
My PhD degree from the University of Barcelona focused on Cellular Biology. It reminds me of what love towards science and teamwork can achieve.
Because of this same passion and curiosity, I continued my scientific career in Munich, where I now live. Here I work with genetic models of pancreatic cancer.
Furthermore, it thrilled me to work as an external expert for the European Commission. Here, I was part of a team that reviewed proposals for European projects of rare diseases.
I also enjoyed working as a peer reviewer for PlosOne magazine. I liked very much reading first-hand research work from scientists all over the world and learned a lot regarding the exchange of opinions with the authors.
These two experiences increased my interest in medical communications and writing.
How I relaunched my scientific career as a biomedical and health freelance copywriter
I enjoyed working long hours and days in the lab, but I was always delighted to find time between experiments to read and research (not easy!).
After a maternity leave that I will never regret, I hung up my lab coat and turned to what I was longing for: reading and writing.
It makes me very happy to have dedicated so many years to basic science.
Training in biomedical and health copywriting
Even though I had spent a lot of time during my scientific education in reading and reporting, I had never before heard the word copywriting until I seriously considered dedicating myself to medical writing. Why? You can find out my thoughts about medical writing, copywriting and science on my blog.
I was lucky to find Michelle Guillemard’s online courses and resources from whom I learn non-stop about biomedical and health writing.
Also being a member of EMWA (European Medical Writers Association) and attending their conferences and workshops has helped me get the confidence I need to work as a biomedical and health copywriter.
Experience and passion together: Biomedical and Health Freelance Copywriter
I believe the hours of the day are our most valuable possession. And, I feel it is a waste not to dedicate our time to the activities that give us authentic satisfaction. That is why I’ve committed my time to what makes me happy.
I would love to hear about your ideas
This is my offer to you: with more than 15 years of international scientific experience and training in copywriting I can check your texts and write content for you that will be both scientifically reliable and easy to understand.
Together, we can communicate scientific data accurately and connect with your reader.
