Dr. Marianne Ellis

University of Bath

Dr Ellis is a Senior Lecturer in Biochemical Engineer at the University of bath.

She graduated with a BEng (hon) in Chemical & Bioprocess Engineering (2001) and a PhD in Biochemical Engineering (2005), both from the University of Bath, and was appointed as a lecturer in the same department in 2005.

She is currently a Royal Academy of Engineering/The Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellow, and was acknowledged as a ‘Rising Star’ in Regenerative Medicine by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council in 2014.

Her research interests are focused on bioreactor and bioprocess design for the scale up of cell therapies, non-animal technologies (in vitro models for toxicology and bioartificial organs), and cultured meat. The latter application of bioprocess design for cultured meat production is a recent interest sparked by chance meeting with New Harvest Board members, of which she is now one.
