Experience of K. Molnar-Kimber, Ph.D. as a writer for your scientific papers

The medical writer for your scientific papers, book chapters, meeting abstracts, or white papers needs to clearly present your hypothesis, results, and their significance in a fair-balanced, convincing manner. 

To hone my scientific writing skills, I have earned the Essential Skills Certificate from the American Medical Writers Association. It requires passing 8 courses on various aspects of writing clear, concise medical prose. 

Your scientific journal article also benefits from the writer’s full understanding of the peer review process.


Ad hoc peer reviewer for the following journals:

Lancet, J. National Cancer Institute, Cancer Research, Cancer Gene Therapy, Human Gene Therapy, Infection and Immunity, Inflammation Research, International Journal of Cancer, J. of Leukocyte Biology, J. Virol., J. of Neuroscience, and Molecular Therapy.

I incorporate my knowledge gained as a reviewer of others’ manuscripts into the writing of your scientific papers.

90+ Journals contain scientific articles written, edited, substantive edited, and / or authored

I have written or edited more than 120 manuscripts for clients who have published them in peer-reviewed journals.  It's my pleasure to work with these distinguished scientists and clinicians.  Here are some of the journals that have published my clients' articles:

Examples of Writing Scientific Papers:

My scientific writing style is easily viewed in the scientific journal articles or publications in clinical journals where I was the corresponding author.

For your convenience, here are 11 of the 20 scientific articles on which I was the corresponding author and their Pubmed links.

These scientific papers describe some of our research on rapamycin, which is now used to prevent organ rejection in transplant patients. Rapamycin is also called sirolimus. It also has anti-tumor activity. We were one of four groups who identified the rapamycin effector protein which is now commonly called mTOR.
