Bo Lyu

Senior Medical Writer

Graduated from the National University of Singapore with a degree in Life Sciences before completing a PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Cambridge.


I joined Costello Medical as a Medical Writer in our Singapore office. In this role, I was able to utilise both my English and Chinese language skills to develop numerous peer-reviewed manuscripts and congress publications in both languages. I also worked on projects such as English reports for advisory boards conducted in Chinese, and Chinese digests introducing English journal articles.


I was promoted to Senior Medical Writer in February. In this role, my increased responsibilities include working closely with clients and authors from the Asia-Pacific region to help promote good publication practices as well as mentoring other members of my team.

Outside my project work, I support with our Singapore recruitment efforts and I am also a volunteer member of the Asia-Pacific Education Task Force of the International Society for Medical Publication Professionals.


Whilst I am still based in our Singapore office, I altered my focus slightly and I now work solely within our multidisciplinary China Team. As this team started to diversify our clientele, I had the opportunity to work with an array of new clients and build up partnership through quality work and good customer service. Throughout this process, I gained knowledge and experience which allowed me to navigate a wider range of new therapeutic areas, such as different conditions in oncology and metabolic diseases. I also had the opportunity to work on our first consensus-writing project, a project type which we have now worked on several times in recent years, allowing me to draw on and build on this experience!


As the China Team continues to expand, I have had the opportunity to draw on everything I have learnt in my career and use this when training and mentoring junior colleagues, which I am increasingly involved in now. Whilst I have been consistently providing project guidance through reviewing colleagues’ works over the years, I now look forward to developing more structured training resources for the team.
