German Federal government funds laboratory meat research Featured

The federal government is funding the "Cellzero Meat" project with about 1.2 million euros. Cellzero Meat is a scientific network that is looking for alternatives to conventional meat production. The goal is to overcome the obstacles that have not yet been solved. To this end, the researchers want to close gaps in knowledge so that meat from the laboratory can be produced without antibiotics and in an animal-friendly way.

The focus is on finding and implementing alternatives for three main problems in the cell-based production of animal protein. These are the use of fetal calf serum and antibiotics in the culture media used for cell culture, as well as the use of genetic engineering techniques.
