“Dolly, the sheep was created when I was 12. I became fascinated with genetics and genetic engineering. During my bachelor’s and master’s studies, I took several biology and chemistry classes and developed an interest in food chemistry. I then decided to start a Ph.D. in food chemistry, and now I analyze food to test its quality.” – Martina Bodner, Food Scientist.
