Agility and adaptability bring mindfulness and excellence to AlphaGroup’s Chelsea CorradettiOCTOBER 9, 2020
As per Cheeky Scientist, Medical Communications is among the top 10 alternative careers for PhD science graduates. Atreju “Trey” Lackey, Scientific Communications Manager at AlphaGroup, is the perfect example of this alternative career option that leverages Trey’s Nutritional Sciences PhD. Trey joined the company’s team of scientific and medical communications experts in May 2020 and is responsible for developing and writing manuscripts for publication as well as abstracts and presentations for national and international conferences.
What do judo and jiu jitsu, video games, and a doctorate in biomedical sciences have to do with scientific communications? They offer the mental focus, attention to detail, and medical acumen needed to excel as Senior Scientific Editor at AlphaGroup Medical Communications.
Chelsea Corradetti, PhD, leverages her multifaceted trainings to lead AlphaGroup’s scientific quality and support team. She also supports the writing team with fact-checking scientific manuscripts, abstracts, slide presentations, and posters for correct scientific interpretation of related scientific literature. This includes constructing tables and figures, assisting with literature searches, and other modes of scientific content support.
Prior to joining AlphaGroup, Chelsea was a postdoctoral fellow, PhD candidate, and undergraduate researcher at Temple University Lewis Katz School of Medicine, where she earned her PhD in Biomedical Sciences and Bachelor of Science in Biology. Chelsea contributed to various publications and conferences in these positions, collaborating on studies included in Arthritis and Rheumatology, Journal of Leukocyte Biology, The Journal of Immunology, and PLOS ONE. Her conference participation spans from the 2014 Temple University Dawn Marks Day oral and poster presentation in Philadelphia to the most recent 2018 Inflammation Research Association International Meeting poster presentation in Philadelphia and the AAI Annual Meeting poster presentation in Austin, TX.
Chelsea is the recipient of various honors, most recently earning the AlphaGroup Precision Award in the company’s first-ever employee recognition ceremony. A former member of the American Association of Immunologists (AAI), she received the AAI Trainee Abstract Award two years in a row. She also earned the Temple University Academic Merit Scholarship and continues as an active member of the Phi Beta Kappa Society.
So, back to the martial arts and video games…
Chelsea has been training in judo and jiu jitsu for the past 3-1/2 years at Philadelphia Jiu Jitsu. “It not only provides exercise, but has built up my confidence,” Chelsea said.
She is also an avid “gamer,” so during the COVID pandemic, Chelsea started streaming on Twitch.tv and plays 4 nights per week, focusing on hidden object games.
Chelsea’s dedication to these various disciplines strengthens her physical and mental agility while promoting wellness of mind, body, and spirit. This combination translates well professionally by giving her the stamina and clarity needed during challenging times.
