In his talk Dr. Christopher Chuck will lay out the need for alternative sources of edible oils such as palm oil, and delve further into the many traits that micro-organisms need to be able to provide a sustainable alternative. Chris will conclude on what the latest developments in industry are and how close we are to a fully renewable alternative.

Chris was awarded a Whorrod Research Fellowship in 2011, to work on the interface between Biology, Chemistry and Engineering.
