Lab-Grown Meat

Medical biologists and tissue engineers work on growing meat in a lab and hope to solve global food crises.

Animal-free meat is on its way to solving the global food crisis, say scientists at the Medical University of South Carolina. Dr. Vladimir Mironov has been working on growing bioengineered meat in his laboratory, currently using turkey cells and growing animal skeletal muscle tissue on a scaffold. The food would be functional, natural, and could be designed into any type of texture or specific meat. Mironov’s lab, however, has not received enough government funding to bring in the new technology. Yet Nicholas Genovese, a PETA-funded biologist working in Mironov’s meat-growing lab, says that cultured meat is more eco-friendly and could become cheaper than farmed meat.
