In Vivo bolsters editorial team by appointing William Looney

Life sciences publication, In Vivo, part of the Pharma Intelligence vertical of Informa’s Business Intelligence Division, has appointed industry veteran William Looney as its new executive editor.

In Vivo, which turns 35 this year, is the only strategically-focused business resource covering the global medical industry. Available in both online and print, its key areas of focus are pharma, medtech and diagnostics.

Commenting on his appointment, William said: “In Vivo is recognized as the gold standard in strategic insight for the life sciences industry. It is our job to keep senior executives informed and enable them to make profitable decisions. We deliver the insight they need to construct winning strategies, combat competitors’ plans, and anticipate future industry and market developments.”

“I’m looking forward to not only maintaining In Vivo’s reputation, but also enhancing the publication’s visibility in the market.”

Karen Coleman, Head of In Vivo, said: “William’s expertise stems from four decades in business intelligence and life sciences across a range of functions. This is a key appointment for us, and we are certain he will take In Vivo from strength to strength during a crucial period for the global life sciences industry.”
