Background Summary

Carol is a biologist with specialized knowledge of biotechnology, analytical biochemistry, and mycology. Based on research found in primary journal articles she designs research proposals and experimental protocols to further explore issues within these areas of inquiry. She is currently working with fungi and developing cultivation techniques for several species that have been found to have culinary and medicinal value.

Carol has worked on clinical and research projects during her twenty years in academia and in the biotechnology industry. She has designed and performed experiments in the laboratory for research and quality control purposes including protein characterizations, analysis of nucleic acids and evaluations of protein modifications. Part of that work has included writing technical reports, experimental summaries and protocols for customers, colleagues, and students. Carol also has developed Standard Operating Procedures for biotechnology facilities that follow Good Manufacturing Practices.

Throughout her career,the written projects she has created have been designed to clarify complex technical information using concrete, specific language. These documents function as essential tools to the scientist preparing for experiments, collecting data or calibrating equipment. Carol has shown a great passion for science and she applies this to the writing process as well. In this way,she is able to create documents that are usable and supportive of obtaining repeatable experimental data.

Carol M's White Paper Product Experience

50 Projects Completed

Carol has extensive experience as a biologist in the biotechnology industry. Writing detailed Standard Operating Procedures for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) compliant facilities was part of the process of assuring testing would be performed using consistent techniques across the batches of product manufactured. Technical reports were also required to summarize experimental techniques used and results found when new processes were developed or transferred to the testing or manufacturing facility. These documents were retained at the facilities with copies made available to clients. These documentation policies were essential to the effective implementation of GMP.

As an academic instructor and researcher, Carol produced research reports to justify research expenditures as well as syllabi which served to formally provide students and department members with written information regarding course content and expectations of student performance.

Summary of Industry Experience

Bio/Pharm

During her years in the biopharmaceutical industry, Carol performed method development and validation work including experimental steps and observations recorded in laboratory notebooks. Based on these laboratory notes and to fulfill FDA and industry requirements, Carol wrote formal reports describing and evaluating the development and validation work. They were archived at the facilities where the work was done and used for reference when developing documents to support quality control testing.

The writing sample is from a validation report on the analysis of a chimeric protein consisting of a diphtheria toxin and a second polypeptide sequence that had affinity for cancer cells. This fusion protein was a unique construction composed of two biologically active parts that would not normally be found within the same protein complex.

Politics

Over the past fifteen years, Carol has been interested in politics and has tried to be alert for biases driven by culture or class as well as false equivalence arguments in political articles. Carol has made hundreds of comments on political articles to discuss the merits of the points made by the authors, as well as to have her own comments critiqued by other readers. She has found that much of what is provided by most major news outlets is driven with an Establishment bias from sources presenting the views of institutions of power in our society while lacking in honest discussions of issues important to many who are outside the circles of power and influence. Carol believes that access to thorough, intellectually honest written content relating to a broad range of political issues is beneficial to the public.

Science

Carol is a biologist with a strong background in biotechnology, biochemistry, and mycology. In addition to writing Standard Operating Procedures for use by industry scientists,she has written proposals for scientific studies based upon primary journal articles as well as protocols with explanations of relevant theory for undergraduate biochemistry and molecular biology students.

Throughout her career, the written projects she has created have been designed to clarify complex technical information using concrete, specific language. These documents function as essential tools to the scientist preparing for experiments, collecting data or calibrating equipment.

Carol has most recently been working with fungal species and have an interest in cultivating fungus with medicinal properties as well as being useful for their culinary attributes. I chose a research review about the fungus Pleurotus pulmonarius as my writing sample.
