Dr. Stan — Physiology SBIR and Academic Grant Consultant, Regulatory Writer


Holder of a PhD in human physiology, Dr. Stan has extensive experience as a grant consultant and scientific writer affiliated with a critical care research group at a large Ivy League teaching hospital. There he obtained a strong understanding of translational research and interventional clinical trials pertaining to critical illnesses such as cardiac arrest, sepsis, etc. as well as with psychological and behavioral interventions for conditions such as chronic back pain and fatigue that are likely to have a psychosomatic etiology in many people. His grant writing duties have included writing (as lead writer) and/or editing multiple types of NIH R series grant proposals, proposals for philanthropic grants, K-series mentored/mentoring grants, and a T32 training grant. He has also extensively edited or authored NIH SBIR and STTR grant proposals in a previous position. Beyond grant proposals, Dr. Stan is proficient at writing and editing yearly interim/final reports for NIH grants, IRB documents, clinical trial protocols, parts of IND (investigational new drug) applications, scientific papers, letters of support and recommendation, personal statements for professional school and grant applications, and faculty promotion evaluation letters.   He especially enjoys working with non-native English speakers and other scientists who need writing assistance, and has often said that his greatest job satisfaction comes when the people he assists are successful in their endeavors.  


Dr. Stan has taken a non-traditional path to his current position as a ScienceDocs Grant Consultant. Although he started off on a standard post-doctoral research track, he soon discovered that he had an interest in real estate and began repairing and renting investment properties. This led to a part-time business as a real estate broker that he ran over many years while simultaneously conducting part-time post-doctoral research in the fields of diabetes and metabolism, transcriptional regulation, cardiovascular diseases, surgical research, molecular cancer, and bioengineering. While at first glance the skillsets required by these two pursuits would seem to have little overlap, Dr. Stan discovered over time that both disciplines require pattern recognition, data analysis, multifaceted writing skills (inclusive of legal documents), the ability to clearly communicate unfamiliar concepts in person and in writing, presentation skills, and the intangible concept of salesmanship. Of these, he found that salesmanship was a particularly underappreciated aspect of medical research because many scientists do not realize that grant proposals are essentially sales pitches.  These traits, along with his broad medical background, have served Dr. Stan well in his writing and editing work. The ScienceDocs services he offers as a Grant Consultant are outlined below:

  • Reviewing, writing and editing NIH and foundation grant proposals
  • Reviewing, writing, and editing yearly NIH interim reports
  • Reviewing, writing and editing clinical trial documents (IRB and clinical trial protocols)
  • Reviewing and editing regulatory documents such as IND applications
  • Reviewing and editing journal manuscripts and slide presentations
  • Help clients put their best foot forward in personal statements, CVs, letters of support, and promotion-evaluations.
