After earning his Doctorate in Cell and Molecular Biology, Dr. Zvonić continued on to a post-doctoral position at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center where he contributed to the development of methodologies for the isolation and culture of human adipose stem cells (ASC) from several sources, and later utilized ASCs to develop a human in vitro model for circadian biology studies. He then transitioned onto a second post-doctoral role at Tulane University, where he directed the technology transfer and development of bone marrow-derived MSC manufacturing and analytical methods in the in-house GMP production facility.
In 2009, Dr. Zvonić joined PCT, where he focused on client engagement and technology transfer into PCT, giving him a comprehensive understanding of cell therapy development, manufacturing and commercialization requirements and strategies. In 2014, he joined the Novartis Cell and Gene Therapy Unit, where he focused on the development and commercialization of Novartis C/GT pipeline products. In 2016 Dr. Zvonić returned to PCT, with a focus on driving the growth and development of PCT’s clinical and commercial manufacturing business lines while integrating into Hitachi Chemical.
In his current role at WindMIL Therapeutics, Dr. Zvonić leads the development of WindMIL’s core technologies and pipeline products, oversees technology transfer and manufacturing of products for use in clinical trials, while concurrently contributing to organizational growth and development.
