After studying engineering, Editor-In-Chief Phil Greenfield started reporting on the medtech sector as a science journalist in 1993, when digital health, TAVR and personalized medicine were pipe dreams. He has since worked across all areas of health-care publishing, as an editor, publisher and principal analyst, and has been responsible for launching intelligence-based products to medtech and pharma clients. Phil has written extensively on topics around diagnostic imaging, IVDs, cardiovascular devices, orthopedics, oncology, wound care, clinical trials and EU reimbursement, and has authored numerous market forecasting reports on subjects ranging from prostate cancer diagnostics and devices to transcatheter embolization systems. Phil has also recently worked as an independent consultant with medtech/healthtech companies and universities assessing markets and product opportunities. A keen cyclist and walker, he lives in Yorkshire, England, where the steep hills help him counterbalance his other loves of food and Belgian beer.
