Abe F. Shevack grew up in NYC and has degrees from the City University of New York and Boston University (magna cum laude) and is a certified Editor in the Life Sciences. He worked for many years in basic research in molecular biology and protein chemistry at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin. During that time, he devised a method for crystallizing ribosomes which contributed to Prof. Yonath winning the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2009 for solving the three-dimensional structure of the ribosome. He continued working in basic research at Schering AG until discovering the field of medical writing, where he continued to follow his interests in both science and writing.
For over 20 years as a senior scientific medical writer at Schering and Bayer, he wrote many regulatory documents including clinical study protocols, investigator’s brochures, study reports, and CTD documents for global regulatory submissions. He has worked in a wide range of therapeutic indications and has participated in successful global marketing authorizations for new drugs in leukemia, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, hepatic cell carcinoma, macular degeneration, and treatments for men’s health.
