With writers and editors stationed around the world, BioWorld MedTech reports the breaking news ‑ and provides key perspective ‑ on hundreds of medical products in development, the companies behind those device and diagnostics, the business development transactions that evolve the market, and the regulatory hurdles that both challenge and guard the process.

Daily news coverage includes:

  • Strategic alliances, mergers and acquisitions
  • Corporate financings, both public and private
  • Med-tech company advancements and setbacks
  • Scientific milestones
  • Global regulatory updates
  • Profiles of new med-tech company innovators


A staff writer reports on medical device development from a variety of angles, including business, finance, scientific, health care and regulatory perspectives.

Each day the writer participates in daily news discussions with the entire BioWorld MedTech staff and is then assigned a story plus brief news items due later in the day. Additional duties include contributions to weekly publications, social media efforts including the blog, and series or in-depth analyses.

  • The ability to understand complex issues – such as clinical and business financings and write about them in a way that is clear to readers.
  • The ability to put the news in context by using archives and databases to provide background perspective on any given news event.
  • A willingness to get along well not only with co-workers, but with sources in the med-tech industry.
