Founded 2022 / Status: Active


Cambridge is not only known for its academic excellence but also as a hub for innovative biotech companies. We aim to create an alt protein ecosystem and build the groundwork for open access research in the alt protein industry.

To achieve this, we are raising awareness of alt proteins in the Cambridge community and establishing a pipeline for talented students to enter the field. We are proud to have built and run the world’s largest alt protein educational and talent recruitment programme, which has resulted in the formation of a number of new student groups, sparked research projects and connected multiple talented students with career opportunities.
