PSPA welcomed Dr. Anna Dilger, PhD to the November Meeting. The virtual meeting focused on Producing Food Products from Cultured Animal Tissues.
Anna Dilger, PhD; Associate Professor of Muscle Biology and Meat Science
Department of Animal Sciences, University of Illinois
Dr. Dilger’s lecture will explore the lab procedures in place at this time to produce animal tissue for food consumption and the regulatory oversight that will be needed. The technology necessary to culture cells for human consumption in the form of cell cultivated meat is developing at a rapid pace. Milestones to bring these products to market for consumer purchase are being achieved quickly, and media attention has dramatically increased. Still, there are many questions that need to be addressed before cell cultivated meat is ready for the dinner table.
