Mark Post is an MD, PhD and professor of Physiology at Maastricht University. His main research interest is the engineering of tissues for medical applications and for food, which has led to the development of cultured beef from bovine skeletal muscle stem cells in an effort to supplement and transform the traditional meat production through livestock. In August 2013, he presented the world’s first hamburger from cultured beef. He is CSO and co-founder of two companies, MosaMeat and Qorium that will commercialize cultured meat and cultured leather.
