More about Dr. Gopen’s original approach to scientific writing can be found in his article, The Science of Scientific Writing.

About the speaker: Dr. George D. Gopen is a Duke University Professor of the Practice of Rhetoric. Professor Gopen received both his J.D. and his Ph.D. in English from Harvard University.

Dr. Gopen is a pioneer in the mastery of scientific writing. His scientific clients have included the NIH, the FDA, Bristol-Myers Squib, Bayer, and Duke University School of Medicine.

This event is sponsored by the IU School of Medicine Office of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development, the Department of Emergency Medicine, the IUPUI Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and the IUPUI Center for Teaching and Learning.
