Philly Cell and Gene Therapy Firm Emerges in Navy Yard Space

Philadelphia cell and gene therapy firm emerges from stealth mode with $64M in funding, Navy Yard space

A Philadelphia cell and gene therapy contract manufacturer is emerging from stealth mode with $64 million in funding, a custom-built facility at the Navy Yard and a veteran health care executive as its new CEO. 

VintaBio was founded in 2020 by Junwei Sun and Dr. Shangzhen Zhou, who developed the first viral vectors used for life-saving therapies, including the cell therapy that cured Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia patient Emily Whitehead of a pediatric cancer.

VintaBio is being led by newly appointed CEO David Radspinner, who spent nearly a decade overseeing global marketing and sales efforts at Cytiva, previously owned by GE Healthcare Life Sciences, and Thermo Fisher Scientific. He was most recently at Newark, Delaware-based ILC Dover, where he was president for the organization’s biotherapeutics portfolio.
