Jelena Suran worked as Associate Professor of Veterinary Pharmacology at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology in the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Zagreb. During 14 years of her work at the Department, she gained experience in teaching, research, and VMP regulatory affairs. After finishing one of her projects involving a novel natural-based intramammary product for bovine mastitis treatment and prevention, she decided to continue to bring this product to the market. Thus, with her core team, she co-founded Apiotix Technologies and left academia to dedicate herself full-time to the company. She is a CEO looking for investment, managing projects, and conducting research.
