Austin, Texas, July 28, 2020Elligo Health Research is proud to welcome Michael Gibertini, Ph.D., to its leadership team. Gibertini joins the team at the healthcare-enabling company as the new chief development officer and will develop new lines of business to support Elligo’s mission to bring clinical research as a care option to patients.

An industry veteran, Gibertini brings over 30 years of experience to Elligo. His unique strength molding service lines to implement teams and processes for complex studies in various therapeutic areas will provide vision, leadership, and operational direction for new Elligo products and services.

As chief development officer, Gibertini will work to expand Elligo’s System of Accelerated Research (SOAR™), a model for hybrid and decentralized trials (DCTs) with fully remote monitoring capabilities.
