"Keep all of your fundamentals strong and for sure you'll find a place in cell ag". Irfan is currently a Ph.D. candidate and New Harvest Fellow at the Engineered Biomaterials Research Laboratory at the University of Vermont where he is tissue engineering cultured meat on plant-based scaffolds.

In this episode:

  • from mechanical engineer to tissue engineer

  • Irfan's research in plant-based scaffolds

  • fundamental vs applied research

  • why plastic is so great that biomaterials haven't fully replaced it yet
