Writing & Editing

Over 16 years of experience assisting biomedical professionals and researchers with
advanced literary writing, editorial, and consultant services.  

Editing Services

Editorial Services

SBIR and STTR Grants 

The U.S. government, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), offer small business innovation research (SBIR)  and small business technology transfer (STTR) grants. This highly competitive program provides up to $1.9 million in funding for the development, prototyping, and commercialization of novel products in biotechnology and other fields. Dr. Balch has served as principle investigator of two SBIRs, and regularly assists in writing and editing SBIR applications for clients.

Scientific Manuscripts 

We are all aware that even beyond excellent research, scientific manuscripts must be written and edited with special care to increase their chances of acceptance.  Crossing your T's and dotting your I's is critical at this stage of the process, as are "flow" and clarity in readability.   With degrees in biochemistry and molecular biology, our knowledge base is perfect for your editorial needs.

Academic Writings

Dr. Curt Balch, Director of Bioscience Advising, has personally authored over 35 peer-reviewed basic and translational research publications, and has also served on NIH study sections and as a reviewer for numerous biomedical research journals.  Due to this experience, we can confidently say your academic writings are in good hands.  

Bioscience Advising provides PhD-qualified editorial services specializing in nearly all subdisciplines of the biomedical sciences.

Grant Writing & Consulting

Grant Writing

Applying for and receiving grants plays a large role, both in your career and your contribution and advancement of research projects.   Yet, studies have shown that due to ever-increasing administrative, teaching, and service demands,   only 5 percent of professors' time is allotted to the preparation of manuscripts and  grant applications.  This is  an unfortunate and disproportionate ratio, given the cruciality of these tasks to your success.

Bioscience Advising is uniquely positioned to relieve most of this burden from the shoulders of academic scholars and entrepreneurs. Designed specifically for those in the bioscience and medical research fields, our editing, proofreading, grant preparation, and consulting services ensure that you always submit the best possible presentation.



With ever-shrinking Congressional appropriations for external NIH funding, it is more important than ever  to be 100% prepared for the application writing process.  We have over 16 years experience creating and submitting grant applications for numerous public and private entities.  Knowing the ins and outs of NIH grant writing, and the application process, our consultation services often prove invaluable to clients  in successfully securing funding.

Who We Help


While we primarily consult internationally with Principal Investigators and Senior Scientists, we also provide services to Research Fellows, Post-Docs, PhD students, and laypersons.

Our extensive experience in  grant application and manuscript writing includes epigenetics, cancer biology, molecular biology, signal transduction, pharmacology, cell biology, endocrinology, phase I/II clinical trials, and biotechnology.

We will write, edit, vet, and critique your research to make sure your grant application “stands out among the pack.”

Areas of Expertise 

We have experience in a vast number of biomedical and health-research disciplines. We understand what it takes to get your articles published and proposals funded.

The range of our bioscience expertise is particularly suited to developing, auditing, and submitting research communications to scholarly periodicals and grant-funding agencies.


With more than 13 years of experience, both in “hands-on” laboratory research and compiling biomedical research for publication, Bioscience Advising is well equipped with in-depth knowledge and academic understanding of the following bioscience topics:

  • Epigenetics 
  • Cancer Biology
  • Molecular Biology
  • Signal Transduction
  • Pharmacology
  • Cell Biology
  • Endocrinology 
  • Biotechnology
  • Oncology
  • Metabolomics
  • Immunology

While these areas represent our core areas of competency, we are capable of advising manuscript preparation and editing for almost any biomedical research communication or request for funding. We will intimately work with you to ensure your research is presented logically, accurately, typographically precise, and can pass a robust scientific review process.

I have hired Bioscience Advising now for over three years, resulting in my successful publication of four research articles in well-respected journals. I would recommend their service to any researcher wishing to increase their odds of publication in high-quality journals.

More About Us

Bioscience Advising

Bioscience Advising is a biomedical research and grant development consultancy based in the  Detroit, Michigan area. We  offer professional proofreading and editing services for all academic disciplines. With over 10 years of experience of grant writing services, editing research manuscripts, and scientific editing services, we have now assisted over 30 clients in successfully publishing articles and securing  research grant funding from various government and philanthropic agencies.

We realize how important it is to have proper  editing, including word limitation, writing for general and distinct audiences, and enhancing readability. Even with outstanding research, academic editing alone can make or break your grant or manuscript. Proper  editing can pay huge dividends to your academic or business career, which makes ours a valuable service to consider. Please call us for a free consultation.

We also offer science proofreading for scientific research journal submissions, white papers, formal letters, and abstracts. The quality of writing is a major determining factor in awarding research grants, which is why writing and editing services are essential in today’s highly competitive world of research grants. As consistently noted by high-level scientific grant review boards, many proposals are rejected due to an unreasonable number of mechanical defects that may be interpreted to reflect carelessness and the applicant’s inattention to detail.  The risk that the same attitude might extend to execution of the proposed study may not be acceptable to  reviewers. This is why the importance of intensive writing,  editing, and proofreading cannot be emphasized enough.
