This Innovation Showcase, hosted by the Institute for the Advancement of Food and Nutrition Sciences, will bring together scientists from multiple sectors at all stages of their careers, from graduate students to professors, technical experts and CEOs. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in dialogue and discussion on the data, technology, and science being applied across the food and beverage ecosystem.
GFI’s Simone Costa, Ph.D., and Paragon Pure’s Chris Gregson, Ph.D., will participate in a session describing career pathways for food and nutrition scientists in the alternative protein field. Tune in to learn more about the alternative protein ecosystem, their career trajectories, and opportunities for scientists to engage in alternative protein innovation.
