Scientific Advisors


Prof. Dr. Roger Pedersen

Roger is Senior Advisor at Meatable. He is Adjunct Professor and Senior Research Scientist at Stanford University School of Medicine and has a demonstrated history of advising in the research industry. His background in Stem Cell Biology, Mammalian Developmental and Reproductive Biology, Regenerative Medicine and Genetics are indispensable for Meatable. Roger holds an emeritus seat at The University of Cambridge, where he co-founded the The Cambridge Stem Cell Institute.


Dr. mark kotter

Mark is a principal investigator in stem cells and neuroscience at Cambridge University with 18 years of experience in stem cell biology and over 3000 citations. He is the inventor of Meatable’s core technology and Mark and his team at Elpis Biomed are supporting Meatable in bringing their technology to the field of cell-based meat,


PROF. DR. Mark Lewis – senior scientific advisor

Mark is the Dean of School and Professor of Musculoskeletal Biology, School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences at Loughborough University, where he focuses on the science of musculoskeletal regeneration and repair. In addition to skeletal muscle his research areas include bone, tendon and neural systems. He has a PhD in Biochemistry from Imperial College London and since the early 2000’s he has worked on tissue engineering and regenerative medicine in 3D cultures. Mark understands the multi-disciplinary approach that is required to progress this field, with physiologists, bio-mechanists/chemists, mechanical-, electrical- and chemical engineers and clinicians adding to his expertise in molecular cell biology. With his experience Mark will be a major contributor to Meatable’s product development team. 


Dr. Luis Fernando Malaver-Ortega

Luis finished his PhD studies at Monash University where he investigated the phenomenon of cellular reprogramming and pluripotency in cattle along with Professor Paul J.Verma, a pioneer in the isolation and production of stem cells from livestock. After his postdoctoral training in cell engineering at The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and The University of Queensland, he is currently serving as Research Fellow for the faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Monash University and manages the Functional Genomics Capabilities at The Monash Health Translational Precinct MHTP Melbourne, Australia.
