Based in New Jersey, Taunia Markvicka is a respected presence in the pharmaceutical sphere who engages with Symbiomix Therapeutics, LLC, as chief commercial officer. Over the past two years, Taunia Markvicka was one of the key leaders of the firm’s successful path to FDA approval of Solosec for the treatment of bacterial vaginosis. Solosec was approved as a qualified infectious disease product (QIDP) which resulted in priority review and additional product exclusivity. Her responsibilities have spanned strategic planning, market analysis, and life cycle management, and commercial planning, as well as investor relations, resulting in successful acquisition of the company.

Dr. Markvicka earned her bachelor’s degree in pharmacy at Creighton University in Omaha and pursued a doctor of pharmacy at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. She also holds an MBA earned at the St. Joseph's University Graduate School of Business.

Dr. Markvicka’s past leadership experience includes executive positions with Stack Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and Pacira Pharmaceuticals. With the latter firm, she guided a successful IPO process and the launch of the non-opioid pain medication EXPAREL. In 2015, within three years of the product's introduction, the company had achieved a $4 billion peak market valuation.

Taunia Markvicka and her family share a personal commitment to environmental sustainability and in 2010 installed geothermal power sources in their residence as a way of lessening dependence on fossil fuels. Read Less
