Writing NIH grant applications can be intimidating, especially if your recent grant applications didn’t get funded, and even more so if the submission deadline is fast approaching. It is also quite time consuming. Nonetheless, it needs to get done and get done well, because you need the funding to continue your research. Get the help of experienced NIH grant writers rather than doing it yourself.

The Med Writers team has extensive experience writing NIH grant applications. In addition to writing and editing NIH grant applications for clients, as a team of PhD scientists, we have all written NIH grant applications to get funding for our own academic research at some point. Hence, we know the NIH grant writing process inside out. We can handle everything for you.

If you are fortunate enough have a flexible deadline and are just thinking about writing a new NIH grant application but are not yet sure which NIH grant would be best suited to your project, we can help you to identify the best one. Once we get to the actual writing of the NIH grant application, you will send us all the papers and data you have and we will ask questions as they arise; however, you won’t need to hold our hands through the process. We realize that our clients – professors, post docs, doctors and healthcare centers – are very busy, and don’t have time to hold a writer’s hand, and should not have to.

Does the NIH grant that you want to apply for have a fast-approaching submission deadline? No problem! Our NIH grant writing and editing experts can turn it around fast. Contact us now with details of your NIH grant application, and let us get started today. Our email is info@themedwriters.com. We look forward to helping you.

Has your supplement company received a warning letter from the FDA stating that the marketing on your website is not FDA compliant, and that if you don’t change it you will be fined or worse yet, they will ban the sale of your supplement in the US? If so, you are probably panicking right about now. No doubt you are thinking that if you have to shut your supplement company website down, even for a short time, it will affect the Google ranking that you worked so hard to build up; and the longer your supplement website is inactive, the further down your ranking will plummet. At the same time, you are probably calculating how much revenue you will lose if your supplement website is down or if the FDA bans the sale of your supplement. If you don’t play your cards right, you could lose so much business that you have to close down.

Clearly, closing down is not an acceptable option. Here’s the problem though, you may have no idea what the FDA guidelines are, or what you need to change in order to comply with them. This can be a terrifying situation for any supplement company, but especially for smaller supplement companies that may not have FDA attorneys or PhD scientists on staff that know what to do. Please don’t panic; The Med Writers is here to help you. We are a team of PhD scientists with formal writing training, who specialize in writing marketing materials for supplement companies. We know what needs to be done in order to make your supplement company website FDA compliant.

Making your website copy FDA compliant involves a couple of things. Firstly, and most importantly, you need to find studies that will substantiate the claims you are making about your supplement. Of course, not all studies will fit FDA guidelines; hence why you need someone that knows the FDA guidelines and is experienced in finding the right studies and writing FDA-compliant marketing. A second thing that is involved in making your supplement company website FDA compliant is knowing what type of wording is acceptable under FDA guidelines. For instance, oftentimes, words such as “cure” or “treat” cannot be used, unless there is substantial evidence to support those claims.

Of course, this presents another challenge; FDA-compliant wording can be limiting, and now that you don’t have the freedom to say exactly what you want, it can be more challenging to create convincing marketing materials. This is yet another reason why you need an expert on your side, someone that can work within FDA guidelines, but still write convincing marketing.

If you’ve received a warning letter from the FDA, it doesn’t have to be the end of the world. Contact us right away so that we can started immediately on making your website and other marketing materials FDA compliant.

The simple answer to that question is: NO, you cannot find a great science writer for five dollars! Sure, there are sites out there, such as Fiverr, that are advertising science writers who will write you an article for five dollars; but if what you are looking for is quality and expertise, you are not going to find it for five dollars.

I’m guessing that if you are looking for a great science writer it is for one of two reasons:

  1. You have a great new product or service that can be backed by science, and you need someone to take the scientific data and translate it onto the written page in such a way that it will be understandable and appealing to a lay audience, and help them to see the benefits of purchasing what you are offering
  2. You are a researcher or scientist who is looking to have your research published in a peer-reviewed journal and need someone to write up your findings in way that will get it accepted to your chosen journal.

Regardless of which of those scenarios describes your needs, one thing is sure, if you want to accomplish your goal you need a great science writer that has the right education and experience.  Ideally, your great science writer should have a science degree. That way you know that they will be able to find and understand the scientific studies needed to complete your project. Of course, not everyone with a science degree is necessarily a good writer though. Therefore, in addition to a scientific education, your science writer should have proven writing experience.

We are a team of American PhD and MS level science writers, with degrees in everything from Biomedical Sciences to Neuroscience and Psychology to Pharmacology and Botany. In addition to the right education, our great science writers are all native English speakers who have extensive writing training and experience. We carefully test all of our science writers to make sure that they can deliver the quality that our clients need and deserve.

So, whether you are trying to get a paper published or just get word out about your new product or service, contact us to see how our team of  great science writers can help you accomplish your goal.

If you run a medical marketing agency, you are well aware that you aren’t alone. Medical marketing agencies are a dime a dozen right now. Of course, not all medical marketing agencies were created equal. So what separates “the men from the boys”, so to speak, when it comes to having a profitable medical marketing agency? Two words – great medical copywriters. We’re not talking good, but great – medical copywriters that turn out copy that converts. Your medical marketing agency is nothing without them.

So what makes a medical copywriter great, as opposed to just good? To be a great medical copywriter you need, not just sales skills, but you need to be able to understand the product or service that you are trying to sell. That’s the edge that The Med Writers can give you. We are scientists and medical writers, with several members of our team being highly trained sales writers. So basically, we know both the science behind your client’s products and services, and the techniques needed to sell them. We work with project managers in medical marketing agencies to produce copy that will blow your client’s minds.

You may be thinking though, isn’t it better to just find someone like that and have them in house on payroll, as opposed to using remote contract medical copywriters? The simple answer to that is “NO”. Let me tell you why.

Using qualified contract medical copywriters is going to save you money and time. How? Well, you don’t need to provide a remote contract copywriter with office space to work in, a computer to work on, and let’s not forget those costly benefits packages that employees get. There will be no training costs involved either, because here at The Med Writers we have already done the legwork to find the best medical copywriters. As a result, when a new project comes up, all you need to do is tell us what the client wants, and one of our great medical copywriters will go to work. Nothing more will be needed on your end – no hand holding, no meetings, no calls. After an agreed upon amount of time, you will receive back credible, well-referenced work to forward on to your client. Should the need arise for edits to the copy, all you need to do is forward us the clients comments and our medical copywriters will get the edits done immediately, at no additional cost to you.

So, if your medical marketing agency wants to save money and time, and produce copy that will keep your clients coming back for more, contact us here at The Med Writers immediately, and see how our great medical copywriters can help increase your profit margin. Really, it doesn’t make sense not to.

As the manager of a medical writing business, I know how hard it can be to find professional medical writers who can write convincing sales copy. Usually, someone is either a great medical writer or a great copywriter, but not both (a great medical copywriter). Fortunately for you, we have already done the legwork, and found a few of those rare talents – professional medical copywriters. That’s right, some of our best medical writers can do both.

I think our tagline says it all as to why we are the perfect fit for any of your professional medical copywriting projects.

“Science Writing That Sells. By Doctors, For People.”

Basically, every professional medical copywriter at The Med Writers understands both the science and how to sell it. Let’s be honest, how many other Ph.D. medical copywriters know the science behind your product or service so as to be able to write both authoritatively and convincingly about it?

It is a fact that it is the words on your website, brochure or email that sells your product or service, and if those words aren’t convincing, then all chances of getting sales are gone. Therefore, it is not only important, but vital, that you hire the best medical copywriter to take care of all of your medical copywriting needs. A regular medical writer or a regular copywriter is not going to cut it. If you want to BOOST SALES, you have no choice, you MUST hire a good MEDICAL COPYWRITER!

The Med Writers is a team of Ph.D. and Masters scientists trained as professional medical copywriters. We are scientists and medical writers, however, most importantly, we are good medical copywriters.

Our best medical copywriters have written sales copy for hundreds of health-related products and services for websites, brochures and email campaigns. Contact us and see how our medical copywriters can make your product or service stand out from all its competitors, simply by using the right words.

Now that you’ve posted a great ad for your medical writing project, and received several promising proposals, you have the task of choosing the right medical writer or medical writing team for the job. What should you look for in the ideal medical writer or medical writing team?

Here are a few things that you should look for:
1. The right education – when it comes to medical writing and the liability issues that could come into play, you don’t want just any professional writer, you need someone who knows the subject matter.

2. Access to medical and scientific journals – you don’t want a writer who will just search the internet to find information, you want someone who has a subscription to medical and scientific journals, thereby providing all of the latest, relevant research for your medical writing project.

3. A large portfolio of samples – a writer’s samples say it all; they can show the depth of their knowledge and their writing skill. To gauge the diversity of their skill, look for a writer who has done several types of writing projects, such as blogs, articles, website content, brochures, sales copy, books and manuscripts to mention a few.

4. Unlimited revisions – let’s face it, every client has a different vision for their project, including you. Therefore, revisions are sometimes inevitable, even when you are using a professional medical writer. However, a professional medical writer will not be afraid to offer free revisions in their price. This will protect you from any unexpected expenses that could come from having to get someone else rewrite or edit the work.

If you keep these four points in mind while reviewing the proposals you have received, you should be able to choose the right medical writer or medical writing team, one that will make any project you throw at them a success.

You are looking for a quality medical writer but how do you tell the difference between a professional medical writer at a great price or an overpriced fake?  With the economic downturn, many out-of-work scientific or health care professionals have gone online to try to pick up some freelance medical writing work. While they may have the medical knowledge, they lack the training, experience and know-how to be the professional medical writer you are looking for.

The professional medical writer and self-proclaimed writer both may have similar degrees and medical experience and charge the same price. But one will do the project just the way you need it done, with minimum hand-holding from you, without countless re-writes and edits and without the bland “blah” of just words on paper that haven’t been brought together in a meaningful way.

Of course you want the professional in order to save yourself the money, time and hassles of dealing with someone who really isn’t a medical writer. Someone’s inexperience shows itself in their work, but it of course, by then it is too late…you’ve already made the wrong decision. Here are two things to help you tell the quality and experience of your potential medical writer.

1. Does he/she have full text access to a wide range of medical and scientific journals?

Professional medical writers that do this for a living cannot get by without full-text access to medical journals. It is necessary to read the details of studies in order to fully explain the results of relevant studies and their impact. Most professional medical writers, like The Med Writers, have access to these via alumni access to a university library online or current university affiliations. This is the best way, since there is no other affordable way to have access to a wide range of high quality articles. Anyone without a university library access, is merely reading the abstracts of articles without being able to see the details. Therefore they may be writing information that is not an accurate portrayal of the results of actual studies.
2. Does he/she have a huge portfolio of past work?

Anyone can pretend to be anything, but what separates the professional from the fake is his/her portfolio. This is the most important criteria, since an inexperienced writer isn’t actually a writer, but a writer-in-training. And even the most experienced writer may not have experience in doing exactly what you need done, so it is best to carefully look through the portfolio of all potential candidates. The Med Writers’ portfolio is available online.

3. Can he/she provide testimonials and references from past clients?

So maybe your “medical writer” lists lots of past projects he or she has done. But if there are no testimonials or references to show that these past clients were happy, then this isn’t good news. All professional medical writers can point you to testimonials or references from past clients that were satisfied with their service. The Med Writers have countless testimonials on the main page of  their website and in a separate document that can be downloaded.

Now you are armed with the ability to find a true professional medical writer to work on your projects. Good luck!

Simply put, medical writers are writers that specialize in writing about medical, scientific, and health related topics. Medical writing can entail an endless number of topics, and a wide range of project types, and medical writers may write for diverse audiences. Of course, not all medical writers are created equal. Some medical writers write only in their field of study, and many medical writers specialize in one or two types of medical writing.

For instance, some medical writers work only for pharmaceutical companies doing FDA submission paperwork for clinical trials, while other medical writers may just write medical textbooks, or manuscripts to be published in medical journals.  Then there are medical writers that just focus on medical writing for a lay audience, ie – website content, articles, e-books, etc. Furthermore, a lot of medical writers are only comfortable with one or two writing styles.

Of course, no medical writer can be expected to be a jack of all trades.  That’s why here at The Med Writers, we have a TEAM of expert medical writers. Our team includes PhD and Masters level medical writers with a wide range of medical writing experience. We write on anything related to biotechnology, nutrition, food, supplements, health, medical conditions and healthy lifestyles, because we have expertise and experience in all these fields.  Here is a list of some of the many types of projects we take on:

  • Articles
  • Books
  • Blogs
  • Business plans
  • E-books
  • Grant applications
  • Textbooks
  • Social media posts
  • Manuscripts
  • Meeting or conference posters
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Product descriptions
  • Product labels
  • Proposals
  • Protocols
  • Sales copy
  • Sales letters
  • Thesis and dissertation edits
  • Web content
