Testimonials

Guy Riddihough was an outstanding editor at Science Magazine. Now, all of his experience is with Life Science Editors. I had an enormously positive experience with Guy in completing our last manuscript for submission. I will be back.

Angela made the impossible possible. Thanks to her knowledge and effective communication skills, she helped us put together an R01 submission within a month of the deadline. This grant has also been funded at first submission. This experience convinced me that a team approach with Angela is the way forward in submitting grants!

Helen, you were so phenomenal as an editor for the journals, … now we get to work more closely and that is priceless.
