John E. Milad

Partner and Co-Head of Healthcare Ventures

John brings a wealth of experience to the role, with over 25 years working in venture capital, start-up leadership and investment banking in the healthcare and life sciences sectors across the UK, Europe and the USA.  

He will be working closely with fellow Co-Head Dr Nigel Pitchford, who joined Downing’s Healthcare Ventures team as a Partner in summer 2022. The team is planning to expand with additional hires and to launch a new institutional fund to back innovative companies using technology to transform healthcare delivery.

John served as CEO of Quanta Dialysis Technologies for eight years, which he helped build into one of the most prominent emerging medical technology companies in the UK with its ground-breaking portable haemodialysis system. At Quanta, he raised nearly $400 million in funding, launched the company’s commercial offering in the UK and the USA, established transatlantic operations and received the MacRobert Award for engineering excellence.
