I am an attorney in the Division of Investment Management at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C.  However, because the SEC requires me to get preclearance of all writings relating to the SEC or securities law prior to publication, I do not blog on anything relating to my job.

I expect many of my posts to focus on health and medicine.  I became interested in medical research while researching treatment options for my teenage daughter, who has heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, a genetic disease that causes very high LDL-cholesterol.  In addition, I am a breast cancer survivor and may blog occasionally on issues related to breast cancer. I am a member of the Society for Participatory Medicine.  In addition, I am a member/administrator of the Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) Discussion Group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/47098836197/).  As of September 2013, I became a member of the editorial board of Circulation:  Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, one of the American Heart Association journals.  In November 2013, I joined the ABIM Assessment 2020 Task Force.

  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 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.
