The Isis Group is a premiere full-service scientific communications company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts in the United States, serving scientists worldwide. Our professional writers and editors specialize in the medical and biological sciences.

All of our editors are native-born American English speakers from the United States, with Ph.D. degrees encompassing all subfields of the biomedical and life sciences. Each editor has more than twenty years experience in research at the bench, and has written, edited, published, and presented their work at national and international conferences. Our editors have also served as peer reviewers for numerous journals, and have written and received grants from the NIH and other granting agencies.

The Isis Group was founded by Laura M. Hales, a Ph.D. scientist with more than twenty years experience in both academia and industry. Dr. Hales received her B.S. at the University of Rochester, and completed her Ph.D. at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Following an NIH-funded Postdoctoral Fellowship at Columbia University, she held positions at several startup biotech companies and worked as a freelance professional scientific writer and editor prior to founding The Isis Group.

In addition to scientific and medical writing and editing services, The Isis Group also provides scientific consulting services, mainly to startup biotech companies.
