"Allison has become a person we have thoroughly enjoyed working with for all of our medical writing needs at Oruen. Her extensive knowledge in medicine is one of the key factors why we have used Allison’s services on numerous occasions and continue to do so. She’s a great writer of manuscripts as well as putting together informative slides and discussion guides for our video interviews. She also offers so much more and we know we are in good hands if we ask Allison to take on a project. She always goes above and beyond to ensure timelines are met which is something we value very highly as well. We are so happy to work together as she is also a great individual, if you are looking for a medical writer, then look no further - Allison is brilliant, deal with confidence!"
"Allison worked as a freelance copy editor on academic books for the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2011 whilst I was the Senior Production Controller. Her work is always of high quality and she has an excellent editorial eye for punctuation and grammar errors. Allison is able to work within tight deadlines whilst dealing with large projects. She also maintains high quality when working under pressure to meet these deadlines. I would have no hesitation in using Allison for academic texts in the future and I can highly recommend her as an experienced copy editor."
"Allison is one of EMJ's most valued and reliable medical writers. She is flexible and proactive when project timelines have to be adapted, and goes above and beyond to swiftly complete additional tasks or resolve queries. The quality of her writing is excellent, consistently delivering on client briefs across a wide range of therapeutic areas. As an example of some recent client feedback on one of her articles: 'It absolutely captures the critical points for both expert disciplines [Hepatology & Radiology] when treating CLD patients. The article really is of great quality!'"
"I had the pleasure of collaborating with Allison Kirsop during her PhD at the School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh. Our specific collaboration yielded an important paper published in 2009 in the ACS journal, Inorganic Chemistry. In this work Allison synthesised novel anti-HIV compounds (vanadyl xylylbicyclam complexes) and showed that they were effective in blocking HIV-1 and HIV-2 strain entry into cells, with bioactivities comparable to market leading drugs. I found it very easy to get along with Allison during this productive collaboration.
Allison has since worked in other cutting-edge areas of research including regenerative medicine, and over the past few years has successfully served as the Editorial Manager of the journal, Neuroendocrinology which further demonstrates her ability to adapt to different challenges. I have no hesitation in recommending Allison for her wide-ranging scientific abilities and intellect."
"Allison is one of the ablest people I know in taking forward projects and managing programmes. Her ability is partly the result of natural commitment and flair, and partly the result of the wide range of experience she has had in her work. She is able to sort out large and complicated problems, with total reliability and a deep sense of responsibility, setting the highest standards for herself and the overall outcome."
"Allison has been employed by the School of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh to provide training courses in scientific writing for both undergraduate and postgraduate (MSc) students. One of the challenges we set her was to help with bringing the skills of overseas MSc students up to the standard required to write an effective thesis. Since the introduction of Allison's training sessions we have noted a marked improvement in the quality of these students' writing skills and have been delighted with her contributions on this front. As the Director of Teaching I value Allison's work very highly and can recommend her as someone who can engage well with a diverse range of students and is always prepared to be flexible in the help and guidance she provides."
"I had the pleasure to work with Allison in a research team at the University of Edinburgh. Allison is an intelligent, creative and hard working person. She works well in the laboratory environment as an independent individual and well as a team player. She has the ability to turn her hand to pretty much everything, and as such often solves a problem in a new or innovative way."
"We have worked with Allison for the last several years in different areas of medical writing e.g creating summaries for videos, conference talk summaries and article summaries. I would highly recommend Allison for her medical writing work."
