New Harvest Network member Nick Walker of Pietermaritzburg, South Africa studies muscle cell differentiation as influenced by various extracellular matrix (ECM) components. In other words, how what muscle cells grow on can help them turn into mature muscle fibres.

He will be attending the Indian Ocean Rim Muscle Colloquium Dec 12-13, 2013 in Singapore to present his work and to spread the word of cultured meat and New Harvest among the rock stars of skeletal muscle tissue engineering.

Have a great time in Singapore, Nick!
