Getting to know Dr. Morelli outside of the clinic

Dr. Gaetano Morelli, MD, Chief Medical Officer at AltasciencesDr. Morelli joined Altasciences in 2017 as a Medical Advisor/Consultant for complex studies. He quickly transitioned to Clinical Principal Investigator before becoming a Chief Medical Officer in 2020.

When he’s not at work or teaching, Dr. Morelli is as an avid reader who finds relaxation in listening to classical music and modern jazz, and in spending time with his family and friends. Although he claims to be a lousy swimmer and finds skiing too risky, he spends plenty of time outdoors, cycling in the summer and snowshoeing in the winter. He also enjoys travelling to experience different cultures, which is something he’s looking forward to doing again once the pandemic is behind us.

“The Dalai Lama once said, ‘There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done.’ Yesterday is gone and tomorrow hasn’t happened yet, so make today count.” – Dr. Gaetano Morelli
