Brydie is a science and medical writer who is committed to creating high-quality scientific content that is engaging, accurate, and educational, sharing exciting scientific research and concepts in an accessible format.

From the University of East Anglia, Brydie obtained her B.Sc. in Biomedicine, M.Sc. by Research in Chemical Sciences, and Ph.D. in Biochemistry. Her Ph.D. focused on developing targeted anticancer and antimicrobial therapy (photodynamic therapy) using nanotechnology.

As well as academic experience, Brydie has worked in both healthcare and biotechnology settings and is comfortable writing about both scientific and health topics for specialized and non-specialized audiences.

As well as writing for News Medical, Brydie writes draft plain language summaries – or digests – of new research for eLife Sciences Publications magazine. These digests are published online alongside the research paper and can be on a range of topics, from immunology to genetics. Brydie also self-publishes on Medium, written for a general audience.

She has experience writing a range of academic documents, such as literature reviews, thesis/dissertations, standard operating procedures, and designing posters and PowerPoint presentations. Brydie is also trained in editing and proofreading documents, which she carries out on a freelance basis.

Throughout her Ph.D., Brydie has been involved in science communication with a range of audiences, from scientists to the general public. Volunteering in programs such as New Scientist Live and Women of the Future Programme, she has a keen interest in delivering effective science communications.

She also volunteered in the Scientist, Writer, and Art (SAW) Project, where scientists, writers, and artists came together to deliver a workshop for primary school students to educate about antimicrobial drug resistance.

She helped design the material for the workshop, including activities and wrote for the SAW Project book. Here, Brydie could really appreciate the value of combining science and writing into an accurate format that can be both educational and engaging.

Brydie loves delving into the scientific literature – new or old ­– pulling out the key and take-home messages. Whether it be for a specialized or non-specialized outlet, she always enjoys getting the chance to learn something new and sharing that with the audience.
