Lessons Learned in 20 Years

Build your business around things you are good at

Dr. Jeffrey Apter and Dr. Eugene Selivra, GCT founders, both had had solid experience in clinical research when they decided to establish a CRO. Their experience in psychiatry, interest and deep understanding of the industry was a necessary premise for success.

Dr. Apter, GCT President is a Medical Director of Princeton Medical Institutes and a Senior Attending Physician at Penn Medicine Princeton Health. Being a Key Opinion Leader (KOL) in Alzheimer’s Disease and Depression in the U.S., he continues to attend the major professional events and to see his patients. Dr. Apter has published dozens of articles in Psychiatry and Neurology.

Earlier in his career, Dr. Selivra, GCT CEO was the Head of a Geriatric Psychiatry Department at the St. Petersburg Bekhterev Psychoneurological Research Institute. The Bekhterev Institute is the oldest Russian scientific institution performing studies in neurologypsychiatry and psychology.  Also a KOL in CNS, he actively maintains professional relationships with the leading experts in the field and is closely familiar with many European CNS sites and Investigators.

For the past 20 years, both GCT founders have been providing expert oversight of CNS studies conducted by GCT.

Value connections across the industry

Establishing personal connections within the industry can end up benefiting the business in an unexpected way, even if they seem irrelevant at first.

Friendly relationships with vendors and competitors allow an exchange of useful information and resources. Being on good terms with past, current and potential sponsors establishes trust and credibility.

At the end of the day, the work environment becomes much more pleasant if it is filled with friends looking in the same direction.
