Petra Hanga

Quest Meat

Co-founder, CSO

"Being a biochemical engineer by training, my research interests lie at the intersection of Engineering and Life Sciences. My research addresses two distinct grand challenges. The first is healthcare, by developing future therapies that will minimise the economic and social burden of an aging population; the second is food and nutrition for health, by advancing cultivated meat technologies that ultimately will enable a radical shift away from livestock products. My multidisciplinary strengths and expertise include an understanding of the whole cell culture bioprocess from inoculation to harvest, including engineering characterisation of bioreactors and biological characterisation of cells."
