Tufts University

A member of the New Harvest family since 2013, Natalie Rubio is currently a New Harvest Cultured Tissue Fellowship recipient at Tufts University in Boston. She is developing edible scaffolds for cultured meat with the David Kaplan Lab in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. With the support of New Harvest and its team of research fellows, Natalie is eager to help progress cultured meat products from the bench to the belly within a matter of years. While observing muscle cells under a microscope is her primary interest, she is also a true crime podcast fanatic and bagel aficionada.
