QB3 Webinar: John York, Impossible Foods

June 17, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

As Chief Science Officer at Impossible Foods, Dr. John York, PhD, leads a fast-growing R&D team expected to double in size in 2021. Before joining the company in January, York served as the Chair of the Department of Biochemistry and a Professor of Biochemistry at Vanderbilt University from 2012 to 2020, where his laboratory paved the way for discoveries in protein structure and function, cell signaling and molecular genetics. He joined Impossible Foods because, as he says, “the opportunity to use biochemistry to save the planet is a spectacular motivation.” Now, Dr. York is finding a new lab and headquarters for the company’s R&D operations in the Bay Area, and he’s leading the company’s world-class scientists as they develop the next generation of sustainable ingredients to solve our ecological crisis. Join this talk to learn about his research and how he is approaching his new role.
