Reed Miller

Deputy Editor

Washington, DC
Reed, deputy editor for commercial and R&D, got his first real job in journalism in 2000 with The Gray Sheet, then part of FDC Reports, based outside of Washington, DC, and has been covering medical technology ever since. His primary focus has been clinical trials and new product development, so he has covered innumerable FDA advisory panel meetings and Medicare coverage decisions. Mixed in to his many years with The Gray Sheet, Reed spent a year in Massachusetts with HCPro in that company’s pharma compliance editorial group, and three years as a reporter for theheart.org, when it was the best news source for cardiologists. In 2015, he’s became deputy editor of Clinica, continuing to track the bewildering and rapidly evolving universe of new medical technology, from IVDs to artificial hearts, from pre-clinical trials to commercialization. Reed has a BA in religion from the College of William & Mary and an MA in Philosophy of Religion from Boston University. He lives and works in his hometown of State College, Pennsylvania.
