Marta helps the Biology Chair with scientific writing tasks such as writing nomination letters for internal and external awards. She also provides faculty members with editing support to improve clarity and highlight the significance of research grants. Her goal is to help faculty members effectively communicate their ideas to grab the attention of reviewers. She also works with trainees in the early stage of manuscript writing. She guides them through the writing (and rewriting) process and helps them create a solid first draft to submit to their mentors. She engages with faculty members to brainstorm ideas that will strengthen the scientific and teaching efforts in the department. Her goal is to address faculty members’ needs either by developing resources or guiding faculty members to already available resources.
