Altasciences Clinical Research has added Dr. Gaetano Morelli to its medical team.
Morelli is the director of gastroenterology/endoscopy at St. Mary’s Hospital, McGill University, in Montreal, Canada. He also maintains both private and academic gastrointestinal (GI) practices in the area.
By joining Altasciences’ medical team, Morelli told us his hope is he will continue to expand the company’s therapeutic offerings in GI disease-specific studies.
“In particular, I want to work with the team of scientific experts to develop approaches for better diagnosis and management of chronic liver disease, which is currently an increasing worldwide concern,” he said.
“My role will be diverse; in addition to acting as sub-investigator on studies, I will support the development of protocols, participate in Safety Review Committee meetings, and perform endoscopies and other therapeutic techniques that are often primary endpoints of GI studies.”
