Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University.

Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
