Week 5: Cultivated Meat Production

In this session, we'll work to develop a shallow understanding of the main components of cultivated meat production, and how they interact with each other. Participants should end this week with a model of the journey of cells from being a part of an animal to being cultivated meat on people’s plates. The core resources are based on MIT Cellular Agriculture's Cell Ag course.
