This is ScideLight

In today’s world, we are bombarded with information, so it’s imperative to make sure your message gets heard over the noise. It doesn’t matter if you’re a pharmaceutical company, a small start-up biotechnology company or an academic researcher submitting a grant to a funding body, everyone needs clear science communication to get their message across.

This is what ScideLight is all about. ScideLight produces bespoke science writing, illustrations, and animations that will engage and inform your target audience. I make high quality figures, illustrations, and animations that are both intuitive and well polished, allowing viewers to easily understand information. My goal is to create visually impressive presentations and images that make a powerful statement to your audience: that your message is worth listening to.

My background as a scientific researcher makes discussing scientific concepts, data and theories easy. I created ScideLight in 2014 after completing a postdoctoral research position at the University of Edinburgh studying how ion channels can be regulated by a protein that senses cell metabolism, called AMP-kinase. My BSc degree in Chemistry at Syracuse University and PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Cornell University have given me a diverse experiences over a wide range of topics. This includes chemical synthesis, biophysics, and neuroscience in addition to biochemistry and molecular biology. My background sets me apart from other scientific communicators. I often read primary literature before meeting a client for a project so that I come informed and ready to go. Also my experience as a researcher means I can easily look up and double-check facts for accuracy before drafts of illustrations are created, reducing revision times and preventing unnecessary rounds of edits. Most importantly, my background helps me to make sure that the images I make accurately reflect your ideas.

If you are seeking impressive diagrams, figures, illustrations or animations, please contact ScideLight. I will make the process effortless and give you material that will inform and impress.

I hope to hear from you soon!
