About this speaker
A scientist-turn-entrepreneur, Matt discovered cellular agriculture during his PhD when he found the New Harvest website. The massive potential to slow climate change through cellular agriculture drove him to secure a New Harvest seed grant where he began to research suitable replacements for foetal bovine serum. Matt then deepened his knowledge during a prestigious postdoc position in a top Canadian tissue engineering lab. Matt’s passion for sustainability and knowledge of the FBS problem culminated in the launch of Future Fields to produce the world’s most sustainable recombinant proteins for cell culture media and beyond.
