DAVID KAPLAN, Ph.D.
Meat and Fish Foods of the Future via Cellular Agriculture
The need for future foods for the ever-growing population requires
consideration of alternative approaches to enhance food sustainability, nutrition
and security. To address this need, Dr. Kaplan has been pursuing a cell-based,
tissue engineering approach. His lab’s central hypothesis is that a sustainable,
cost-effective, and scalable cultivated-meat and fish, and alternative protein
platform will increase food availability options while decreasing environmental
impact. Dr. Kaplan will review the considerable progress towards this goal.
Further, there remain many challenges and opportunities, from cell types and
cell engineering, to media formulations, scale up requirements and nutritional
issues, which will also be discussed.
