Billionaires Bill Gates and Steve Branson have joined Cargill [one of the largest agricultural companies in the world] in investing in Memphis Meats, which has been working to bring accessible, ethical and cruelty free meat to the market. Memphis Meats has successfully grown beef, chicken and duck meat from the animals’ stem cells, providing the same taste and nutrition without any harm to animals. By programming the cells to become muscle tissue, the company has been able to create lab-grown meat with all the biological components of real meat. The cultured meat is said to look and taste exactly like the real deal, but could be even more salubrious for consumption, given that it bypasses the hormones and the unhealthy diets that livestock is often fed.
Why is this important to the field of regenerative medicine? The insights, technologies and methodologies [being developed in the agricultural market] to culture and differentiate stem cells is transferrable to growing other types of tissue in the lab, such as organs and human tissue, accelerating the development of stem cell based applications and paving the way for future treatments.
