Today John Cumbers [founder and CEO of SynBioBeta] talks with Eben Bayer, CEO and Co-Founder of the biomaterials company Ecovative. He’ll be talking with Eben about:

  • Why mycelium is an ideal host not just for biochemical production but also biomaterials structuring.
  • Eben’s conception of “bio adaptation”, and the relationship of synthetic biology to “the good life.”
  • What emerging products and markets he is most excited about these days, be it plastics, plant-based foods, or even the scaffolding for growing organs.
