About This Project
Producing cultivated meat is difficult and expensive because the cells need enough surface to grow. Bioreactors, where the cells are cultured, have limited space for the cells to stick to. This research aims to solve this problem by creating tiny particles (microcarriers) made from natural materials that can be used in the bioreactors. These microcarriers will provide more surface area for the muscle cells to adhere and grow on, which will improve the meat production efficiency.
