Scientific publications editing and consulting
Mission statement: “help you tell your scientific story and publish it!”
I have a PhD in biology from the Johns Hopkins University where I was part of a team that described the first mutations in the p53 tumor suppressor gene in various cancers. I have had further training at different universities across the United States and Europe, including the University of California, San Francisco and most recently, the University of Bergen in Bergen, Norway. I have published in many prominent journals including Cell, Science, Nature, and Cancer Cell.
janikiInk is an idea for an editing service for non-native English speakers that emerged from my experience in Europe as a scientist. The editing and writing service is specifically focused on science and medical research, although the services can be provided for other non-technical topics as well. janikiInk is also a blog about my travels and my experiences as a scientist in the US and Europe.
Professional experience in scientific editing and writing: I have worked for AmEditor as a universal and certificate service editor and for Filipodia Publishing as a developmental editor, writer and academic consultant.
Blogger for Filipodia.com. From September 2015 to January 2017, I wrote a monthly post on diverse topics in scientific and medical editing. The subject matter covers challenges in publication today not just for clients, but for editors and scientists globally. Links to individual posts on the Filipodia website are provided below.
Writing experience in non-scientific venues: In addition to my scientific explorations of the development of human gliomas, I am an avid scuba diver and photographer of the underwater world. My travel stories are also published at scubaverse.com, daneurope.org, uwphotographyguide.com and the LA Times.
