Professional practices Will Volny endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I have over 30 years of experience working for companies that sell and market to scientists in R&D/manufacturing at pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device and diagnostic companies, as well as with life science researchers working for government agencies, academia, and non-profits. I operate a technical sales lead company, called Compass Life Science.  Before this I headed  the lead development team and directed the Marketing Communications group at GE Healthcare. In previous years, I was heavily involved in technical support roles, managing groups, training, and maintaining knowledge databases. His technical area of focus was in molecular biology, assays, and instrumentation used by the pharmaceutical industry. I obtained his Masters degree in Biology at the Illinois Institute of Technology.

My translation skills were developed during 1990-1995, when I was a free-lance translator.  Memorable translations include a 60 page technical document on a Slovak nuclear reactor for the US Government, and a lengthy treatise on biological weapons.
