Dr. Paul Hudman is a biologist who has always loved the variety the discipline allows him. From spending time as an undergraduate student surveying coral reefs in the Caribbean to his postgraduate studies in bacterial fermentation he’s always been fascinated by what biological systems can achieve and adapt to. After completing his doctoral thesis Paul moved into drug development and safety testing of biologics holding numerous scientific, managerial and commercial roles over nearly a decade. He joined the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre not long after its launch and has been working to develop strategy, engage companies and forge new relationships ever since. The variety of these interactions and technologies at the nexus of biology, chemistry, engineering and environmental sciences is what keeps him excited about what is developing in this field and the potential it has for industry globally.
