As an emeritus professor in medical sciences I have many years of experience in medical research and teaching. I did my PhD at Stanford University followed by an Alexander von Humboldt research fellowship and a sabbatical year in Munich. I have published extensively in international journals throughout my career, so that I have an excellent knowledge of medical and scientific terminology and a great deal of experience in writing, editing and proofreading medical, scientific and technical English.

My wife is a German native speaker and physician with excellent English. With her background (and patience!) she is the best proofreader one could wish for.
