Meet The People Who Make GCB Happen
We are proud to be a diverse, global team united by values including openness, positivity, and drive that stems from our founders. No matter how much our team grows, we still feel like family. The Gulf Coast Biologics Training & Education Center was launched in an effort to establish and standardize evidence based clinically scientific treatment methodology and to educate and train practitioners on the best use and application of regenerative autologous biologics. The custom built educational center is an independent state-of-the-art training facility where attendees can learn, collaborate and fellowship in a vibrant, elegant and modern environment.
The courses are carefully structured to help practitioners better understand the enormous benefits of regenerative medicine and its life changing impact on patient outcomes. The courses are presented in collaboration with Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center, Center for Continuing Medical Education (CCME) to provide Educational CME certified activities for its attendees.
Dr. Peter A. Everts began his career in regenerative medicine in the Netherlands in 1981 before moving into the orthopedic surgery and cardiac surgical arenas in 1989. Dedicated to providing scientific and evidence-based outcomes, he developed the first European department of Peri-Operative Blood Management. The main focus became the application of regenerative and autologous biological cell therapies to stimulate natural wound healing, avoid general infections, cardiac, orthopedic, plastic reconstructive, spinal surgical procedures, and chronic complex wounds.
His research and clinical biological theories ultimately contributed to his PhD in 2007 from the University of Utrecht Medical School while defending his research titled “Autologous Platelet Growth Factors: Autologous Platelet-Leukocyte Enriched Gel Basics and Efficacy. (ISBN13: 978-90-8590-0160-0) He’s published more than 60 peer reviewed articles, booklets on platelet rich therapy, bone marrow and adipose cell therapies. Peter brings a positive, enthusiastic and practical approach to learning regenerative medicine treatment options from an evidence-based perspective.
In his spare time, Peter enjoys playing his German Shepherds and Wolfdog, as well as rounds of golf or pickleball.
Ewa joined Gulf Coast Biologics as a Clinical Support Specialist inspired to transform patients’ lives through science. She works closely with physicians to analyze their needs and recommend appropriate training and services to help growth their regenerative medicine practices. In her daily work she provides detailed guidance and insight in the areas of clinical practices, safety, and patient care processes & outcomes.
When Ewa isn’t getting hands-on in the training room, she offers account management (on-site or through remote assistance) to physicians to ensure the proper understanding and use of applications and methods.
Ewa thoroughly enjoys working with people to provide insightful, honest product information to those interested in learning. She also brings a positive, proactive approach to solving complex or unusual clinical and technical problems. Ewa holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and Bachelor’s Degree in Social Sciences.
Ewa is an extensive world traveler and fluent in Polish, Russian and English.
Marissa, a Filipino native, has been with Gulf Coast Biologics since its inception in 2018. She has one of the most important roles in the facilitation of our training and education center being the first and last point of contact for visitors throughout the entire process and experience.
Whether it’s organizing the training sessions, making sure training rooms are properly equipped and stocked, or handling the paperwork involved; she is the liaison between physicians, our trainers and company management.
Marissa brings a professional and friendly approach to her work and only thinks in terms of excellence when it comes to customer satisfaction. In addition to superior organization skills, she can seamlessly multi-task and prioritize her time effectively in our team-centered environment.
