Howard M. Fried, PhD, ELS
For 40+ years, I have been a research scientist concentrating in the fields of biochemistry, cell biology, and molecular biology. As a professional scientist, I have enjoyed both the freedom to pursue my curiosity and the challenge of designing experiments. However, as Edwin Boring remarked, "Doing an experiment is not more important than writing." Indeed, writing is a form of experimentation. We must constantly redesign our experiments because most of them do not yield answers, and we must repeatedly revise our writing to convey with increasing effectiveness our ideas and findings.
Despite the struggle to write effectively, which even the most successful writers acknowledge, I have equally enjoyed the challenge of scientific writing and the rewards that come from fruitful communication. Likewise, for my entire career, I have been a teacher, invested with the same responsibility to connect with others as one has in publication.
