In the role of Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Geltor, Alex leads the team‘s mission to design and deliver superior texture products via the company’s advanced protein manufacturing platform. He collaborates with commercial partners to create biology-enabled solutions that are better for people, businesses and the planet. Alex is strongly motivated by the positive impact that Geltor’s protein production technology can have on public health and sustainability. His passion for combining synthetic biology, materials science, and computational tools began when he was an MD/PhD student studying the mechano-biology of healthcare-associated infections. He has co-authored six peer-reviewed publications and is frequently asked to speak throughout Europe and North America on Geltor’s technology, products and business. He holds a PhD in Molecular Biology from Princeton University, an MS in Biomedical Science from Rutgers University, and a BS in Biology from Boston College. When he’s not pushing the limits of biology at Geltor, he’s ideally either on his road bike or exploring other fermented products.
