Effective clinical research sites, Gabriel D'amico- Mazza

“I enjoy conversations. It takes you somewhere different” – 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.
