We are proud to announce publication of our groundbreaking research paper, “A More Open Approach Is Needed to Develop Cell-Based Fish Technology: It Starts with Zebrafish,” in the esteemed top-tier sustainability science journal One Earth.
The peer-reviewed manuscript on the future of cell-based meat, commissioned by Cell Press, is an expression of a new collaborative model in action. It shows how a more transparent, inclusive, and accessible approach can deliver engagement and improved understanding, essential to conducting effective and impactful science and making progress on many of society’s urgent grand challenges.
We want to thank everyone who shaped our thinking, including over 40 contributors, nine co-authors, and over 25 scientists named in the paper. The generous contribution of their time, expertise, knowledge, and perspectives made this possible.
We’d also like to thank One Earth and Lewis Collins (Editor-in-Chief), who provided extraordinary input and guidance. One Earth’s leadership and insight into sustainability science helped us reshape and expand our paper into the game-changer it needs to be. Finally, thank you to our anonymous reviewers, who helped us create a rock-solid case for the urgency for society to come together to develop cell-based fish.
Our system for advancing planet-critical science is broken. So the paper proposes (and demonstrates) a new system for transdisciplinary collaboration that is transferable to other challenges and projects. In this light, we are excited for what this endeavor means to the future of cell-based meat AND to helping society develop resilience and other solutions to our crises. Read it now.
