Bonfiglio is known for raising capital, building start-ups, and leading successful biotech companies as CEO and COO.

Dr. Bonfiglio is a veteran leader in the biotech industry with a track record of raising capital, building start-ups and excelling in C-suite roles. After spending his early career at Allergan Pharmaceuticals and Baxter HealthCare, he turned to discovering, promoting and leading smaller biotech ventures. He was CEO at Peregrine Pharmaceuticals where he turned around the financially strapped public company. 

During more than thirty years in the industry, his notable achievements include helping Cypress Bioscience reinvent itself as a neuro-pharmaceutical company and, as CEO of Immune Response Corporation, raising more than $50 million and restarting clinical trials in HIV and MS.

Currently he is a board member for Avipero and executive board member for Sequella, a US- based biotech company.

Tony Isaac, JanOne's CEO, welcomed Bonfiglio to JanOne's top management. He said, "We are delighted and honored to have Dr. Bonfiglio join us. His experience in running public biotech companies will prove invaluable to the progress of JanOne. Our entire team looks forward to working with him."

Dr. Bonfiglio expressed his "goals for collaborating with the well-respected scientific team at JanOne." He said, "We will plot a course for the approval of important therapies in the area of pain management and peripheral artery disease.  The technologies will meet unmet medical needs and relieve avoidable patient suffering. I am excited by JanOne's potential to be successful in these areas."
