Maastricht University starts new research line on cellular agriculture

Thanks to a strong financial impulse from the National Growth Fund, Maastricht University, as one of the partners in a national consortium, is starting a new line of research in the field of cellular agriculture. This is technology where animal products such as meat and milk proteins can be produced directly from animal and microbial cells. The Maastricht line will be started by scientists from MERLN, a medical research institute conducting groundbreaking research into regenerative medicine.
