Second Nature Food Publication about Cultivated Meat


An article co-authored by Prof. Shulamit Levenberg, Dean of the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering, was recently published in Nature Food. The article reviews the challenges in transforming cultured meat into a commercial option. It was written as a joint collaboration between leading cultivated meat researchers: Prof. Mark Post of Mosa Meat, Prof. Shulamit Levenberg of Aleph Farms, Prof. David Kaplan of Tufts University, Nicholas Genovese, PhD of Memphis Meats, and additional cultivated meat leaders.
