MERLN involved in new research line on cellular agriculture

Thanks to a strong financial impulse from the National Growth Fund, MERLN, as part of a national consortium together with Wageningen University & Research and TU Delft, 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.

On MERLN's side, the research is led by Lorenzo Moroni and Matt Baker. All activities of the consortium aim to give the Dutch cellular agriculture ecosystem a major boost over the next eight years. Click here to find out more.
