About Wenjing Mu
From 2009 to 2015, I had 6 years of basic research experience in the field of cancer biology. The six years of research experience strongly improved my creativity, logical thinking and problem solving skills. In addition to bench work, I also assisted my PhD supervisor in writing manuscripts and patents. I also seized every opportunity to earn real editorial practice by assisting my PhD supervisor in reviewing more than 20 research manuscripts and writing comments, from journals including Cancer Cell, Cell Reports, Cell Research, Hepatology, Oncogene, JBC, etc, and most of my comments and ideas were appreciated and accepted. These experiences greatly cultivated my ability to read and assess the novelty as well as the weakness of research findings, and broadened my scientific interest. In 2015, I joined Pfizer medical writing team and gradually accumulated clinical research experience. So far, I’ve completed writing 7 clinical study reports, covering therapeutic areas of oncology, sickle cell disease and hemophilia B, etc. From these studies, I’ve learned to interpret study results clearly and accurately, and learned to coordinate with different functional teams (including clinicians, statisticians, research scientists and project managers) to complete a clinical trial. I’m pleased that the clinical study reports I produced successfully helped my company to push novel drugs from clinical trials through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, and I received good feedback from Pfizer global team. I enjoy learning new ideas and techniques, and I’m interested in communicating science. My basic research and clinical research experiences made me highly interested in translational medicine - the conversion of scientific discovery into health improvement. I hope to move translational medicine forward by promoting the publication of innovative biomedical research findings. With my passion for science communication, I am willing to pursue a career as a scientific editor in Academic Publishing.
