For 23 years, I was an attorney in the Division of Investment Management at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C.

I expect many of my posts to focus on health and medicine.  I became interested in medical research while researching treatment options for my then-teenage daughter, who has heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, a genetic disease that causes very high LDL-cholesterol. I am a member of the Walking Gallery of Healthcare.  In addition, I am a member/administrator of the Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) Discussion Group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/47098836197/).  In September 2013, I became a member of the editorial board of Circulation:  Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, one of the American Heart Association journals.  From November 2013 to September 2015, I was a member of the ABIM Assessment 2020 Task Force. I am also a patient reviewer for BMJ and an associate editor for the Society for Participatory Medicine newsletter.

  1. Hi Marilyn, I’m writing because I wanted to show and offer you a new tool we just launched at FindTheBest that helps those innovating in the bio and health industries find VC firms that focus primarily on that space. I thought it might make a really cool tool to share readers because it can help find where you might want to take your pitch, and is a great way to help foster healthcare innovation.

    Take a look and let me know your thoughts, I’d be happy to help out however I can.

    I hope all is well.
    I wanted to reach out to you in regards to guest blog posting. The folks at Ubiquinol.org have written a post focusing on statin drugs and the side effects those drugs have on Ubiquinol Levels in the body.
    Would you be interested in taking a look? He article isn’t published anywhere else, and we would love to share it with you.
    Looking forward to your thoughts.
