Bay Area Science Festival 2019 (Wonderfest)

In 1931, Winston Churchill declared: “We shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing, by growing these parts separately.” Can meat really be grown in the laboratory? How do such cultured tissues taste, and how much do they cost? Alongside enormous animal welfare issues, does “in vitro” meat have health implications for humans AND for the planet at large? Hear from Dr. Nicholas Legendre, our Director of Biological Research, speak about these topics and more. Organized by Wonderfest. Click here for more information.
