For our May meet-up, A2I has invited Nena Chavira, Ph.D. to speak with the group. As a science writer and editor, Nena helps customers navigate the fast-changing landscape of scientific applications by creating assets that describe the features and benefits of research tools from microtubes to large-scale next-generation sequencing systems. She is passionate about scientific communication and enjoys organizing data, researching publications, crafting engaging narratives, and creating documents with rich content. With over 7 years of writing experience in the biotechnology sector, she has covered a broad range of topics including forensics, reproductive health, agrigenomics, complex disease, metagenomics, oncology, microbial genomics, and more. In her spare time, Nena enjoys dancing, making jewelry, and chasing her twin 7-year-olds.
