As a contributing editor to Nature and as News Editor for Nature Medicine, I’ve edited several special packages of content.You can see examples of these at the link below:

Magazine supplements

I also edited all the news at Nature Medicine between January 2003 and December 2007, as well at Spectrum from its launch in January 2008 until February 2015, with the exception of two three-month periods of maternity leave. These days, I top-edit only the longform content on Spectrum, and glance over the rest before publication.

  1. Dear Ms. Mandavilli,

    I hope you are well.

    I work for Al Jazeera’s online team and we are currently working on the November issue of the award-winning Al Jazeera digital magazine – the theme of this issue is HEALTH.
    Here is the link to our October issue: http://www.aljazeera.com/pressoffice/2013/10/al-jazeera-magazine-natural-born-stateless-2013106105112102629.html
    I was wondering whether you would be available to write for us? We have a couple of topics in mind:

    – A broad piece looking at attitudes towards universal healthcare across the world – taking in Obamacare and how the Conservative government in the UK are dealing with the National Health Service (NHS). Also a look at how attitudes towards universal healthcare vary between countries and over time, who is best at providing it and who is worst, what the political and ideological influences are etc. How do attitudes towards healthcare define a country?

    – A historical piece looking at some of the events and people who have shaped medical developments, shifting attitudes towards healthcare, the role played by religious institutions etc. Also to have a side piece on how medical professionals have been involved in some of the darkest moments in human history and how those stories are told etc – eugenics, medical experimentation, the death penalty, torture etc.
    Please do let me know whether any of these topics interest you and if you are interested in writing for us.
    I look forward to hearing back from you,
