"The editing you did of my paper made it possible for me to get the remaining credits necessary to get my Ph.D. The quality and timeliness of your work was impeccable, and its value unsurpassed."
Martha Kaufer-Horwitz,
Facultad de Medicina, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, México.

"NOVA's scientific writing support was a critical element of the success of the Workshop on Childhood Cancer Etiology. The succinct summary of 45 multi-disciplinary presentations by NOVA's team of professionals exceeded the organizers' expectations."
