About Me
Richard Mains is a life scientist and writer-editor dedicated to helping government, academic and business entities create and communicate easily readable stories about the value of their R&D to their stakeholders. He does this through Mains Associates, the company he founded in 1982 to support NASA space research projects. The company now extends these services beyond space exploration to bio/nanotech, biomedicine, bioengineering, green tech, healthcare/aging and other life sciences areas. Visual Thesaurus will hopefully help me to tell stories more clearly and in a more compelling way to broad audiences.
