Dr. Anne O'Rourke received her B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Biochemistry from the University of London, England. She has 25 years of research experience in academia and the biotechnology industry.

Before becoming a full-time writer and editor in 2009, I worked for 15 years in academia, including 7 years at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California. I then worked for 10 years in biotech, where I led research groups developing small molecule and biologic therapeutics for autoimmune diseases and cancer.

I have extensive experience in biochemistry, immunology, autoimmune diseases, oncology, and drug discovery, and I've published more than 30 articles in top-tiered journals, including Nature and Science. I have also been a reviewer for several biochemistry and immunology journals, as well as for the NIH.

I am a member of the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA), the Council of Science Editors (CSE), and the San Diego Professional Editors Network (SD/PEN). My clients include Biotech companies, clinicians, and scientists at some of the top biomedical research institutes and universities in North and South America, Europe, and Asia.
