Consulting in Biotechnology and Nutrition

Biotechnology and Nutrition for Healthier People on a Healthier Planet

Humanity in the Anthropocene faces enormous challenges in terms of the need for feeding a global population of 8 billion today and 10 billion predicted for 2080; the human impact on climate change and biodiversity; and the requirement for more sustainable health care systems. 

Yet, humanity also disposes of unprecedented powerful knowledge, technologies, and means to meet these challenges, fuelled by the converging revolutions in bio- and information technology. Nutrition stands at the forefront of these opportunities to deliver better human, animal, and planetary health. In short: we can’t save the planet unless we fix nutrition.

If your science, research, and/or business relates to this context of biotechnology, human/animal health and nutrition, or planetary sustainability – let’s talk. I will be pleased to support you in your scientific and business development, leveraging my experience and network in industry, academia, and with government.
