(LOS ANGELES) – The Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation (TIBI) has actually been awarded a grant by The Good Food Institute (GFI) to establish a unique and reliable technique of producing cultivated meat, which is meat grown straight from the cell. The TIBI scientists will bring into play their comprehensive experience in tissue engineering and cell culturing methods to establish their ingenious technology, which would utilize distinct microcarriers in separating cell cultures. The task dovetails with GFI’s objective of advancing alternative proteins to produce more sustainable techniques of producing meat.
Conventional methods of meat production including grass-fed animals come at extremely damaging expenses to the environment. Studies have actually revealed that alternative meat sources, such as meat cultivated from animal cells, produce 92% less international warming, 93% less air contamination and consume to 95% less land and 78% less water than with traditional meat production techniques. Not remarkably, the prospective benefits of alternative meat production have actually stimulated much research study and advancement in this location in the last few years. Addressing the problems of scalability and expenses for these techniques, nevertheless, has actually stayed an obstacle, so researchers are continuously aiming to enhance their techniques and boost production performance.
The outcomes of the TIBI task will be released and provided to the research study neighborhood for feedback and concepts for even more enhancement. It is the hope that the approach will become utilized on a big scale to produce a top quality, economical industrial item that can be utilized to cultivate any meat types.
“There is a real need to produce worldwide food sources in a more environmentally friendly and sustainable manner,” stated Ali Khademhosseini, Ph.D., TIBI director and CEO. “Our proposed method addresses all the challenges involved in creating a simple, scalable method of cultivated meat production. It is one of the many examples of the work that we do within our tissue engineering and personalized nutrition platforms.”
“Alternative proteins can feed the world sustainably and satisfy the surging global demand for meat,” stated Erin Rees Clayton, Ph.D., GFI associate director of science and technology. “For alternative proteins to efficiently reach their potential, the industry must be underpinned by a robust foundation of open-access science. Investing in research enables us to answer fundamental questions, address unmet technological needs, and ultimately bring plant-based and cultivated meat to the masses.”
The grant to TIBI was awarded through GFI’s Research Grant Program, which funds fundamental open-access alternative protein research study and has actually assigned more than $7 million to 38 research study efforts because the program’s beginning in 2018.

Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation
The Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation (terasaki.org) is a non-profit research study company that develops and cultivates useful options that bring back or improve the health of people. Research at the Terasaki Institute leverages clinical improvements that make it possible for an understanding of what makes everyone distinct, from the macroscale of human tissues to the microscale of genes, to produce technological options for a few of the most important medical issues of our time. We utilize ingenious technology platforms to study human illness on the level of private clients by including sophisticated computational and tissue-engineering techniques. Findings yielded by these research studies are equated by our research study groups into customized diagnostic and healing techniques incorporating individualized products, cells and implants with distinct capacity and broad applicability to a range of illness, conditions and injuries.
The Institute is enabled through an endowment from the late Dr. Paul I. Terasaki, a leader in the field of organ transplant technology.
About The Good Food Institute
The Good Food Institute is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit working worldwide to make alternative proteins scrumptious, cost effective, and available. GFI advances open-access research study; sets in motion resources and skill; and empowers partners throughout the food system to produce a sustainable, safe, and simply protein supply. GFI is moneyed totally by personal humanitarian assistance. GFI’s Research Grant Program is enabled by a choose group of donors who have actually selected to direct their humanitarian assistance to open-access research study.
