Our Centers of Excellence

We have particularly deep experience in oncology, with our Oncology Center of Excellence led by Alex Kalmanofsky, Executive Director and Molly Brozell, Senior Director.

Among patients, carers and HCPs we have recruited and conducted many projects spanning conditions including:

  • Breast Cancer (HR+/HER+/TNBC)
  • Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
  • Small Cell Lung cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Colorectal Cancer
  • Pancreatic Cancer
  • Multiple Myeloma
  • Urothelial Carcinoma
  • Renal Cell Carcinoma
  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma
  • Biliary Tract Cancer
  • Head & Neck Cancer
  • Melanoma 
  • Ovarian Cancer
  • Other

Exemplary oncology research requires a combination of scientific knowledge, understanding the business, and eliciting deep and nuanced information from people who prescribe, administer, approve, and take the medications. Most companies get the first two right. We do too. But our psychology-based methods allow us to go deeper to draw out the HCPs, patients, and carers and provide you with an understanding of oncology you will not get anywhere else.  

OUR PATIENT WORK starts from understanding that memory is fallible, and a traumatic diagnosis can cloud perceptions of experience. We focus our conversations on the current moment, and ground participants in the past by recalling sense memories. 

OUR HCP ARCHETYPES focus not just on their prescribing behaviors, but on the subconscious biases that tell us who they are as humans, recognizing how those biases play out in the real-world oncologic setting. We give you a picture of the human experience of treating cancer that leads to more potent strategies for your brand’s success.  

Rare Disease Center of ExCELLENCE

Rare Diseases are another area of focus at Galileo, within our Rare Disease Center of Excellence, led by our Vice President, David Sisson.

We partner with many Biotech clients, who particularly value our strategic consulting model, as well as our creative thinking, nimble adaptability (in keeping with their own fast pace) – and expert recruiting. We have an exceptionally skilled and innovative Field Team, with deep experience successfully recruiting hard-to-reach patient populations. We bring genuine empathy and compassion in talking to patients coping with these particularly difficult diagnoses and see it as an honor to be able to support the successful launch of much-needed drugs in smaller rare disease categories. 

We have recruited and conducted many projects exploring Rare Diseases including:

  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
  • Mantle Cell Lymphoma
  • ALK+ Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
  • Multiple Myeloma
  • Hunter Syndrome
  • Huntington’s Disease
  • Hepatorenal Syndrome Type 1
  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
  • Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension
  • Acromegaly
  • Giant Cell Arteritis
  • Hemophilia A
  • Dermatomyositis  

Other Areas of Passion AND Focus

Health & Wellness

Our deep focus on patients’ disease experiences gives us a unique perspective on their changing relationship with health and wellness throughout their lives-and has fueled our passion (and experience) researching products that build and support wellness e.g. skincare, anti-ageing, nutrition, health tech. This passion is further evident in our company mission-to provide our research participants with a quasi-therapeutic experience.  

Women’s Health

Our psychology-based approach is particularly potent within the sensitive, emotionally charged, and often taboo areas of women’s health (in which we have deep category experience). As a women-owned company, we are especially passionate about empowering women to unapologetically tell their authentic stories.  


We have unmatched experience in luxury research and strategic consulting for brands like Harry Winston, Rolex, Rolls Royce, Audemars Piguet, and Cadillac. We have led co-creation research resulting in billion-dollar new product ideas, have helped clients identify new targeting opportunities for existing brands, and have helped identify and optimize effective marketing campaigns.

What CLIENTS Are Saying

"I have had the pleasure of partnering with the Galileo team on various projects for two luxury automotive brands (Lexus and Cadillac). From vehicle positioning work to target segmentation – the team is able to unearth deep consumer insights that deliver powerful strategic implications. The team, led by Cathy and Sarah, are not only brilliant but also absolutely charming. This charm makes a huge difference in how they are able to disarm even the toughest research participant and win her/his trust."
