Cellular Agriculture comprises a range of biotech methods that produce real animal-based materials and products, such as meat, dairy and leather… without the animals. High-profile backers, ranging from Sergey Brin to Bill Gates, are now investing in a growing number of startups racing to bring “cell ag” products to market and, in the process, disrupt the global carbon and resource-intensive animal product industries. The implications of such a transition for climate, animal welfare and human health would be enormous in magnitude.
New York City, home to a burgeoning commercial life sciences and biotech sector and a handful of notable cell ag startups and support organizations, is well-positioned to emerge as a hub for this young industry. In this discussion, guests will enjoy a primer on cellular agriculture and a highly-speculative, multi-perspective brainstorm on what an NYC cellular agriculture sector might look like—and what it would take to make that vision a reality in the not-so-distant future.
