âI enjoy conversations. It takes you somewhere differentâ – Gabriel D’Amico-Mazza
Gabriel is one of the most positive and enthusiastic individuals I know in clinical research. This was one of the main reasons I wanted him to be on this show.
He is an expert in business development at a clinical trial site, GCP Research, in Quebec, Canada.
Since joining GCP Research in 2010, Gabriel has led recruitment and advertising for Phase 2 and Phase 3 clinical studies. He has been involved in over 40 clinical studies and has been an integral part of the growth of GCP Research.
Gabriel graduated from Concordia University with a BSc and a Specialization in Biology. He has also finished a follow-up Graduate Diploma program in Health Care Management from McGill University.
