“Jeff Perkel is the rarest of breeds: A writer with top-flight scientific credentials who writes with vigor about science. I got an education in everything from genomics to HPLC when we worked together at The Scientist. His enthusiasm for these subjects and untold others in the life sciences shines through in everything he writes, and when something doesn’t work, he isn’t afraid to redouble his efforts until it does. Call him when you need a freelance writer, especially in a scientific subject that you realize is far beyond your own expertise.”

— Ivan Oransky, Deputy Editor, The Scientist
