tws-2009-1-web-v06.pdf: I guest edited the March 2009 issue of the European Medical Writers Association journal, The Write StuffThe theme is ‘Regulatory Medical Writing’ and my guest editorial appears on page 4.  This is my first foray into editing and I really enjoyed it.  I hope you can find time for a spot of light reading!

I am a freelance medical writer providing a range of writing services, primarily to the pharmaceutical industry. I am a post-doctoral virologist working in clinical research since 1994, and specialising in regulatory medical writing from 1999. In my last salaried position (to September 2006), I managed UK Medical Writing for the world’s fifth largest Contract Research Organisation.

I have contributed widely to the official publications (The Write Stuff and Medical Writing [journal]) of the European Medical Writers Association (EMWA). I post my articles on my blog, primarily to disseminate the information to a wider audience, and to hopefully generate some stimulating debate. If you have anything to share, I would love to hear from you.

If you like what you read, and require the services of a highly motivated, experienced and diligent medical writer, then please contact me through my website: http://www.samhamiltonmwservices.co.uk
