  1. Hi Ed,
    I am so pleased to have found this site (through the Daily Telegraph science writing competition 2008)! I have just started a PhD in neurotoxicology, and am interested ultimately in combining my interests in science and in writing.
    I hadn’t heard of the Ebola virus before but your article on it was well worth reading; your writing style really allows your enthusiasm for the research to come across. It’s also good that you provide links to your published work – e.g. NT-MRSA in ‘The Economist’. Should I manage to achieve a career in writing about science, I aspire to a similar clarity of writing style. I will certainly return to this site!
    Best of luck with your freelance career!
