Using Your PhD to Combat Climate Change

Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Virtual Event


Dr. Rachel Fraser, PhD, Impossible Foods, Vice President of Downstream Process Development

Dr. Hélène Berges, PhD, Inari Agriculture, Vice President of Research and Development

The climate crisis has galvanized scientists to pursue bold ideas to both reduce carbon emissions, as well as adapt to a changing environment. Join us for a moderated Q&A to discover how we, as biologists, can leverage the skills that we have acquired to pursue industry research positions that are focused on sustainability. We will be speaking to Dr. Rachel Fraser, the Vice President of Downstream Process Development at Impossible Foods, a company focused on developing plant-based meat substitutes, and Dr. Hélène Berges, Vice President of Research and Development at Inari Agriculture, a company harnessing AI and multiplexed gene editing to produce robust seeds for food production.
