  1. Renee Eli PhD

    Renee Eli PhD

    Expert Editor, Researcher, Academic & Medical Writer

    United States - Last active: 25 days ago - Tests: 2

    An expert editor, my work is touted by clients as "exceptional," "creative," "visionary," "impeccable," "professional," "clear," "resourceful," and "highly recommended." I provide developmental, copy- and line-editing for projects from the sublimely creative to the scientifically specific. As an academic writer, I am particularly well-versed in medical writing. My education and professional backgrounds range from medicine and medical humanities, medical sociology and anthropology of the body, to biology and ecology, contemporary philosophy, and the history of cultural beliefs. In addition, I have nearly three decades of experience as a healthcare provider and educator. I work with clients in a uniquely personal albeit professional and collaborative manner to evoke the clearest, most authentic expression that best articulates intention, whether of academic writing, a good story, or a finely choreographed expression of both. To wit, I am a fastidious editor. My approach is methodical and detail-oriented with a view of the whole. I am attentive to the piece of writing as a clearly articulated narrative progression, and to the details of word-choice, grammar, punctuation, and format. My work is founded upon a value for excellence in service, which means delivering exemplary work in a timely and professional manner. It is my view that good writing is well-researched, thoughtful, and thought-provoking. It has the capacity to change minds and transform lives, because the writing—well tuned—is experienced by the reader as an integrated whole. It both captures the mind and transcends it as a deeply personal experience of the heart. Writer is changed. Reader is changed. I am most at home with projects that push the boundaries of existing paradigms—or endeavors that envision new cultural patterns, espouse an integrative view, and open important questions. Not only am I practiced at engaging such aims creatively and as a writer, I am passionate about doing so.

    Classic old school communications polymath

    United States - Last active: 03/28/2014

    It’s embarrassing how much pleasure I can find in creating flawless technical manuals, research articles, white papers, marketing copy, shareholder reports, business forms, web content, press releases, multimedia presentations, your ghostwritten memoirs. These are not things to quicken the pulse of most grown men. But they quicken mine. Have you looked yet at the attached CV? I know, it’s a little nuts—Dartmouth, Columbia, Lehman, Goldman Sachs, ivory towers, limos, deadlines and busted mill-towns. . . But running through this ridiculously eclectic professional life is a constant theme: communications art, and above all, the written word—the lodestone which has guided my achievements in fields normally thought distant from the writer's craft. My creed: language matters, form matters, style matters. They matter even when, or especially when, the reader is oblivious to the manner in which language is operating. I'll confess to being an elitist---an Orwellian, Strunkian efficiency zealot. A poorly written street sign can ruin my day. Yet I am also a pragmatist---for most tasks, pushing any further than "good enough" is waste of time. While I'm in the confessional mood, this too: I'm picky about projects. They need to be fun, and I have fun when 1) there's a good fit between my skills and your needs; 2) you are frighteningly smart and uncompromising in your expectations; 3) the work is challenging and important; and 4) nobody gets machine-gunned at the end. And so. . . Whatcha got?

    I most enjoy working with multidisciplinary teams to design projects, navigate the complex regulatory and administrative landscape governing medical research, and build the systems necessary to support the endeavor. In my work as an independent research consultant, I help startup companies ensure compliance with FDA mHealth, marketing and social media requirements for health products. I also work with researchers to take studies involving human subjects from conception to IRB approval, provide audit support, and develop SOPs to maintain research in compliance with the Common Rule, HIPPA, Medicare National Coverage Determination, Good Clinical Practice Guidelines, and other governing regulations. I draw on my ten years of clinical and translational research experience at the University of Chicago Comprehensive Cancer Center, along with my formal education in law, bioethics and clinical trials management, to ensure the success of the project.
