Our team is committed to solving the current research gaps associated with the production of “cell-based” meat. Furthermore, we believe that a single species focus will enable greater advancement of the science and move us closer to solving the problems associated with commercial-scale meat production.
Clean Research Senior Scientist Dr. Reza Ovissipour Awarded $1MM USDA Grant to Study SARS-CoV-2 in Food Supply Chain
Congratulations to Virginia Tech and Reza Ovissipour, Ph.D. on winning a two-year, $1 million grant from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture to spearhead critical research studying SARS-CoV-2 survives on food and food contact surfaces, transfer and developing mitigation methods. Reza heads up Sustainable Food Production Systems at Virginia Tech. In addition to helping the world combat SARS-CoV-2, Reza is leading the cell-culture media components of the Clean Research development plan that will make cell-based lean fish a reality. His lab facilities support rapid scale-up of the experimentation necessary for the cell-based lean fish project.
To help launch the first scientifically sound effort in cell-based fish, we ran two simulations with global experts.
We are proud to announce publication in the esteemed sustainability science journal One Earth of our peer-reviewed manuscript on the future of cell-based meat, commissioned by the Cell Press editorial team.
This COVID-19 crisis will be over one day. We have an opportunity today to start addressing some of our other grand planetary challenges in a new, more effective model of innovation that is more generous, open, collaborative, science-based, and truthful. We could minimize the odds of future pandemics and deliver truly sustainable long-term solutions for humanity.
The opinion article in the New York Times, “The End of Meat Is Here,” gets some things right but misses the boat in two crucial ways. It’s the end of animal agriculture, not meat. And it’s not here, but near, if you consider 20 years or so “near.”
For the most reliable information on the pandemic, RealClearScience has you covered. RCS compiles and shares clear, relevant, and evidence-based science news and opinion.
The consensus among research scientists on anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming has grown to 100%, based on a review of 11,602 peer-reviewed articles on “climate change” and “global warming” published in the first 7 months of 2019.
New commercial fishing regulations apply to the waters of the European Union and may pave way for field of cell-based fish.
