Jordan Jones - New Harvest Fellowship Series Cultured Meat and Future Food Podcast

    • Science

Alex Shirazi interviews Jordan Jones, who is working on exciting new  technologies that could lead to tremendous milestones in the world of  cultured meat.

Jordan Jones grew up in Memphis, TN. He graduated as Valedictorian from  Memphis Academy of Science and Engineering. His interest in biomedical  engineering began in high school through an internship at Memphis  Bioworks. While there, he was able to study cartilage regeneration using  human stem cells.  Jordan then began pursuing a Bachelor of Science  degree in Biomedical Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute  (WPI). He received several merit scholarships including the  Marshall/Chavez/Means award. Jordan was a research assistant in Dr.  Glenn Gaudette’s laboratory from 2014 to 2016. He worked on numerous  research projects focused on cardiac regeneration, decellularization,  and designed bioreactor systems. For his senior thesis, Jordan designed a  system that utilized decellularized plant vasculature as a model for  medical diagnostics and drug testing.

After graduating from WPI, Jordan worked in the medical device industry  from 2016 to 2018. He then returned to WPI to pursue a PhD in Biomedical  Engineering. In 2018 Jordan’s research was displayed at The Centre  Pompidou in Paris, France, in the exhibit “La Fabrique Du Vivant”.  Shortly after returning to WPI, Jordan became a New Harvest research  fellow. He is currently working on developing lab-grown meat. Jordan  uses decellularized plant tissues to form a vascularized scaffold  suitable for 3D bioengineered tissues, including structured meats such  as steak.
