APPLY HERE to join VIP Cellular Agriculture team
Spaces are limited!
Our global food systems are in a state of exhaustion. Join our exploration of growing animal products in the lab and get a foretaste of how cellular agriculture can improve human and planetary health. Your project will intersect the fields of biochemistry, engineering and food science.
Over the past decade, significant progress has been made in using technologies developed in the medical and biomedical sciences to grow food from the cellular level. In this course we will develop techniques and tools to explore the broad and emerging field of cellular agriculture, particularly around tissue culture, bioreactor design and food science.
At its heart, cellular agriculture promises to help the agricultural industry become more sustainable but, while proofs of principle have been delivered, we still have a long way to go. Current problems relate to scaling and also the nature of raw materials used for in vitro systems.
While there are many challenges to overcome (technological, societal and economic), it is a very exciting area of discovery with the potential for research to grow exponentially in the next decade.
All degrees are welcome however, students specialising in the below areas are encouraged to apply.
