Brian has been an instrumental part of our extended team across multiple clients for more than 2 years. Whether we need his support for developing executive summaries, scientific platforms, or diving into the literature, Brian always delivers high quality work in a timely manner. He is professional and an absolute pleasure to work with!

David E. Kaminsky, PhD VP, Scientific Director at Razorfish Health

Brian always provides thorough and timely edits on a diverse range of grant proposals. He consistently gets excellent reviews from our faculty.

Peter Hare, PhD, MSc Director, Scientific Editing at NYU Langone Health

His choices were always good, and his writing was clear, concise, accurate, and on deadline. I recommend him highly.

Bob Finn, MS Senior Managing Editor, Univadis.com

“I have worked with Brian on a number of scientific editing projects over the past 2 years and been very satisfied with his work. He is a doctoral level scientist with an understanding of a wide range of subjects. Not only is the editing well-done, but he is attentive to detail and carefully points out other things such as inconsistencies or vague statements. He is also responsive and timely, and I look forward to continuing to work with him.”

Laura Hales, PhD Founder and President, The Isis Group

Brian Richardson is a thoughtful and an organized scientist capable of thinking outside his field. He is also an exceptional communicator who can breakdown complex concepts for consumption by scientist outside his field and for non-scientists. He is a fantastic mentor and a colleague. He was a pleasure to work with. I give Brian my highest recommendation.
