THE Founder

Mohamed Gamal Headshot

Dr. Mo Gamal, PhD CEO & Founder

Technology Inventor

Dr. Gamal has spent over a decade working in the pharmaceutical industry. He has worked for international brands such as GlaxoSmithKline and Novartis. Previous titles he has held include: community pharmacist, product specialist, and pharmaceutical trainer.
In 2012, he earned a Master’s Degree in Stem Cells and Regeneration. This was followed up with a PhD from the University of British Columbia in Biomedical/Medical Engineering in 2020.

Having devoted his entire career to biotechnology, he believes that gelMa bioinks and 3D-bioprinting are the future of medicine. A researcher himself, Dr. Gamal understands the challenges faced by his colleagues in the scientific community.

His own struggles as a PhD student compelled him to invent and patent a novel way to produce gelMA. As The GelMA Company CEO, he is committed to making gelMA the most accessible and versatile hydrogel in the world so that more groundbreaking research can take place in the field of biotechnology.
