Express Insight into Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer: the ninth most common cancer worldwide, with nearly half a million new cases diagnosed each year. Unfortunately, less than three-quarters of those receiving a diagnosis will survive five years, and only about half can expect a decade.

About the Author

Michael Schubert

While obtaining degrees in biology from the University of Alberta and biochemistry from Penn State College of Medicine, I worked as a freelance science and medical writer. I was able to hone my skills in research, presentation and scientific writing by assembling grants and journal articles, speaking at international conferences, and consulting on topics ranging from medical education to comic book science. As much as I’ve enjoyed designing new bacteria and plausible superheroes, though, I’m more pleased than ever to be at Texere, using my writing and editing skills to create great content for a professional audience.
