BYOB (Build Your Own Bioreactor) with our Open Source Design
We’re excited to share the designs for an open source bioreactor – a project six years in the making with many evolutions. Back in 2017, New Harvest Research Fellow Jess Krieger pioneered a new project to build a cultured meat bioreactor with an ambitious team of mechanical and materials engineering students at the University of British […]
Want to start a fellowship program? Here’s our Fellowship Toolkit
The New Harvest Fellowship program has been critical to building the field of cellular agriculture. We’re open sourcing how it is run so you can craft your own.
Fifteen New Original Research Publications
In April we shared 45 papers published by New Harvest’s donor-funded researchers. (Here’s part 1 of 7 on the blog.) There have since been 15 new peer-reviewed papers published! It is exciting to see the results of these projects, often many years in the making, come out into the world. The open sharing of research methods […]
A Compilation of Our First 45 Publications, Part 7: Bioreactors
This paper is the first of many we hope to support that makes the scale-up conversation accessible to a wider audience.
Key takeaways from “Food safety aspects of cell-based food,” the FAO’s milestone paper
Safety is non-negotiable when it comes to cell-based foods. That is why I am so pleased to share the progress of the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) on this topic. Today, a milestone publication was made public which shares up-to-date technical knowledge on the food safety aspects of cell-based food production. This milestone […]
A Compilation of Our First 45 Publications, Part 6: Scaffolds
Part VI is about scaffolds, the materials that cells (especially muscle cells) like to attach on to grow.
A Compilation of Our First 45 Publications, Part 5: Media
Part V is about media: the liquid that cells grow and divide within, and its many components.
A Compilation of Our First 45 Publications, Part 4: Cells
Part IV is about the cells of cellular agriculture. These are the building blocks of the field!
A Compilation of Our First 45 Publications, Part 3: Food Safety
Part III is short and sweet: our single, highly influential paper on the safety of cultured meat.
A Compilation of Our First 45 Publications, Part 2: Impact
Here’s part two of our seven part series sharing all 45** of the peer-reviewed publications supported by New Harvest. This second compilation of papers is all about assessing, measuring, and maximizing the potential impact of cellular agriculture on the world. We look at environmental and socio-political angles of the technology. These types of papers are […]
A Compilation of Our First 45 Publications, Part 1: Scientific Reviews
Did you know that New Harvest has supported 45 peer-reviewed scientific publications in cellular agriculture? As you know, building the scientific foundations of the field is a key part of our role as cellular agriculture ecosystem builders. That means funding fundamental, open research: the work that drives innovation, sparks follow-on government funding and investment, informs policymakers, […]
Launching the AI in Cell Ag Initiative
Our collaborative project, funded by Schmidt Futures
Announcing New Harvest’s cell ag crowdfunding challenge on Experiment.com
We’re teaming up with Robert Downey Jr.’s FootPrint Coalition and the Experiment Foundation to get “unfundable” projects off the ground.
Why we don’t sign NDAs or Confidentiality Agreements
Impeding the flow of information misaligns with New Harvest’s role as a public charity.
Announcing New Harvest’s 2021 Grantees
In 2021, New Harvest welcomed 10 new grantees to our research community, bringing our total number of active researchers to 30. Here’s a sneak peak of what they’re working on.
Announcing New Harvest’s 2020 Grantees
In 2020, New Harvest welcomed 13 new grantees to our research community, bringing our total number of current researchers to 26. We were able to DOUBLE our research program—in a pandemic no less—thanks to the generous support of New Harvest donors.
Without further ado…meet New Harvest’s 2020 cohort of cell ag pioneers!
