Amy Huang

We welcome Amy Huang, Associate Director of Scientific Ecosystems at the Good Food Institute as our February Speaker! SCIFTS has partnered with Research Chefs Association (RCA) and Village Green Foods to host this meeting and get insights on the state of the cultivated meat field.

The Good Food Institute is a global nonprofit network of organizations advancing alternative proteins (cultivated, plant-based, and fermentation) as an essential solution needed to meet the world’s climate, global health, food security, and biodiversity goals.

Amy leads the Good Food Institute’s university-level engagement to catalyze alternative protein R&D and cultivate an inclusive workforce to power the future of food. She led the establishment of the Good Food Institute’s Alt Protein Project and continues to support students and faculty as they build research and training ecosystems to reimagine our protein supply. Join us for an overview of the scientific, commercial, and regulatory landscape of the cultivated meat field.

Amy has a background in global health, education, effective altruism, and design thinking. She holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Harvard University and is thrilled to be devoting her career to accelerating alternative proteins in the service of human, animal, and planetary health.
