Medical Science (esp. neuroscience, ophthalmology, genetics) Editor Dr. Margaret
Dr. Margaret received her PhD from the University of Chicago in 1988. Her research training was in vision science and her dissertation project was a genetic study on color vision. She has been editing scientific manuscripts in numerous fields for over 10 years. Her scientific background is in ophthalmology and neuroscience, however, she has a great deal of experience editing manuscripts in many additional areas, including genetics, molecular biology, medical case reports, meta-analyses, gastroenterology, cancer, review articles, and even plant studies. She has edited many papers that are scientific studies on traditional Chinese medicines. When requested, Dr. Margaret will format scientific reports to fit journal guidelines. Dr. Margaret is also experienced in grant writing and has co-written and edited many grants that were submitted to government agencies, such as the National Institutes of Health, or private granting agencies.
For more than 25 years, her primary occupation was teaching biology classes for non-science majors as part-time faculty at universities in Chicago. The three main universities she worked at were Loyola University, DePaul University and the School of Professional Studies at Northwestern University. Dr. Margaret has also participated in studies on the visual system intermittently throughout her teaching work life and so she maintained a connection with research developments throughout the years. She has recently retired from teaching and is interested in extending her work life to include writing about science for the general population and writing about issues related to the nature of scientific investigation. Teaching classes that were primarily designed for non-science majors helped her develop the ability to “translate” scientific reports to the story of scientific investigation and discovery that most can find interesting. The historical context of scientific discoveries is especially important in bringing life to the recounting of scientific information. Dr. Margaret’s interest in the history of science is also a benefit that allows her to write more interesting articles about current discoveries and major scientific breakthroughs.
