Behind the Words

Hello readers.

Firstly, thank you to everyone who has subscribed to MedicineWeekly or has read any of my posts. I thought it was time that I gave some background on myself, the author of all articles here on MedicineWeekly. My name is Stephanie Clague, I am 22 years old and I am currently working as a Scientific Copyeditor for an oncology medical journal. I love my job as I am able to play a role in science communication, as well as being one of the first to read the latest research and experiments on cancer from all over the World.

I have been passionate about science and particularly physiology and medicine since I held a position of work experience at the pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline when I was 16 years old. From then I proceeded to study Biology at A level and Biomedical Sciences at degree level at the University of Warwick. I achieved a 2.1 degree overall and a First in my dissertation in which I had to use the media to communicate the issue of the MMR/autism controversy. It was from this piece of work that I became enthusiastic about science communication and consequently determined to pursue a career in medical publishing.

I started MedicineWeekly in October 2011 as I wanted to continue writing about science, with the aim of providing a website for the public to access to find the latest medical news. I chose the slogan “because medical news affects us all” as I believe that everyone should be in the know about the latest development in medicine which could ultimately save our lives.

I hope you continue to follow MedicineWeekly and enjoy reading my posts. I welcome any comments or feedback.

Thank you
