Erin M. Burns, PhD, MSPH


I am an experienced and enthusiastic medical writer/scientific consultant, ready to take on any writing or editing project you may have. I work with clients to deliver clear content tailored toward both professional and lay audiences, with quick turnaround.

I have a PhD in Biomedical Science with an emphasis in Cancer Biology from The Ohio State University and an MSPH in Applied Epidemiology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Over a decade of laboratory and writing experience enable me to deliver high-quality work in a variety of subject areas. For more information on my professional experience, visit my LinkedIn page or download my resume.

After years of working in the laboratory, I have seen how important writing is to scientific success. It is my goal to bring more success to scientists/clinicians and to share these successes with others.
