Marie Gibbons

Marie is an M.S student in Physiology at North Carolina State University and New Harvest Research Fellow. As part of her work with New Harvest, she is researching how to sustainably culture turkey muscle cells for mass production, and is establishing the first publicly accessible turkey cell line. Marie became interested in cellular agriculture while working with a farm animal veterinarian. She witnessed the animal welfare, environmental, and public safety concerns that our current agricultural industry is facing, and is excited to be a part of the solution.  In addition to cell culture, Marie enjoys yoga, camping, gardening, and working with animals!
