ScienceDocs Chemistry Editor and Grant Writer Dr. Tod
Dr. Tod is a highly experienced grant proposal writer and chemistry editor. He earned a PhD in Chemistry at the University of Washington, where he completed the total synthesis of Ovothiols A and C, and studied their single-electron redox properties in vitro. He then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Enzymology at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he studied the mechanism of ribonucleotide reductase from E. coli. During a 19-year pharmaceutical career at Parke-Davis and Pfizer, he published more than 30 peer-reviewed manuscripts detailing his laboratory’s work in gene synthesis, protein expression and purification, assay development and screening, and inhibitor mechanism of action. He also served as a research project leader in antibacterials, antivirals, and neglected diseases. Working first in the US, and then in England, Dr. Tod collaborated with scientists from many backgrounds and cultures. He returned to the US in 2010 and joined the Department of Medicinal Chemistry in the University of Michigan’s College of Pharmacy. There he began writing manuscripts and grant applications, and editing documents for non-native English speakers. Now a member of the American Medical Writers Association, he writes, or edits, scientific manuscripts and grant applications for scientists and clinicians and serves on the editorial board of the journal Assay and Drug Development Technologies.
