Help with biotech investor article[edit]

Hi there, I'm looking for editors interested in biotechnology who might like to help improve the article for Randal J. Kirk, investor and CEO of Intrexon, a company that works to create biologically based products and projects that include the first FDA approved genetically altered food animal, genetically altered mosquitoes fighting viruses carried by the Aedes aegypti, non-browning apple, synthetic immuno-oncology, gasoline substitutes, crop protection, and improving bovine genetics. I'm looking to improve the article's readability and reduce WP:NPOV issues. You can see the full details of my edit request over at the Randal J. Kirk Talk page.

As disclosure, I do have a financial conflict of interest with this topic, as I am here as part of my work at Beutler Ink, consulting on behalf of Randal J. Kirk via Hill+Knowlton Strategies. As such, I do not intend to make any edits to the live article and hope other editors can review and make the changes they feel are appropriate. Thanks in advance! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 04:30, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi @16912 Rhiannon:! Thanks for the note and for disclosing that. I saw your proposed changes and I'll get a chance to take a look later this week or this weekend (anyone else should, of course, feel free to respond sooner if they're free!). Sorry for the radio silence you got on Talk:Randal_J._Kirk. So many articles; so little time... Cheers. Ajpolino (talk) 05:07, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

In honor of the efforts to the late Milton Beychok[edit]

I would like to ask, in the memory of this expert late editor's contributions, that some of his articles and sections be reviewed, and reliable chem eng sources be added when necessary. While I have no doubt as to current accuracy of areas where this AIChE Fellow worked and illustrated, unsourced content begets unsourced future edits, and the current quality is at risk if the sections invite inexpert future edits. So, I am asking chem engineers to add good, reliable, worthy sources to this expertise-rich quality material. One such section, Schematic flow diagram and description at the article, Delayed coker, from which other material from him can be found, via his maintained User page. Note, Beychok authored a couple of books, and never cited them, as far as I can tell. It would be perfectly fitting (and academically appropriate), where his published work overlaps with his earlier compositions, to use these citations to support the texts. I will try to add, via bullets, other articles to look at to which he contributed, and any of his work that I can identify. Cheers, User:Leprof_7272.
