The project

Identifying combinations of natural bioactives to promote muscle cell growth and favourable traits for cellular agriculture

More information

I have always been curious and fascinated by the world of science and believe deeply in the advancement of medicine through research to prevent, diagnose, and cure disease. I am studying a Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne, with a major in Neuroscience. I have a particular interest in physiology, anatomy, and bioengineering as they revolve around the study of life. Scientific exploration, particularly through cellular agriculture, is foundational to this advancement.

I am undertaking this opportunity with Cellular Agriculture Australia at the Centre for Muscle Research, Lynch Laboratory, under the supervision of Professor Gordon Lynch and Dr Marissa Caldow. In the future, I hope to work in a hospital as a researcher and doctor, and I have a personal desire and commitment to making a real and positive difference to my community, and ultimately, in my chosen field.

Final report coming 2024
