Rick Galli


After graduation from the University of Windsor with a degree in Microbiology, Rick Galli began his extensive career in research and diagnostic laboratory sciences with the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care Public Health Laboratory in 1973. Since then he has worked in senior positions in public and hospital laboratory settings as well as the private sector. He was directly involved with leadership of laboratory diagnosis and monitoring of HIV infection from 1987 to 2005, and served on numerous HIV advisory boards and associations, most recently as President of the Canadian Association of HIV Clinical Laboratory Specialists. Before moving to Vancouver and joining the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS  in 1999, Rick initiated the first and only provincial peer-reviewed HIV/AIDS grants and awards program of its kind for Ontario-based researchers, through the Ontario HIV Treatment Network in Toronto. From 1999 to 2005, Rick helped establish and managed the first accredited HIV molecular laboratory monitoring program in Canada at the BC Center for Excellence in HIV/AIDS.  Since joining bioLytical Laboratories in February 2005, Rick has been instrumental in directing the regulatory compliance elements for bioLytical and INSTI that resulted in Health Canada approval, CE Marking for European Union member countries, WHO prequalification and US FDA approval and CLIA waiver. Mr. Galli is responsible for bioLytical Laboratories’ regulatory, scientific and clinical affairs.
