Founded 2023 / Status: Active


The McMaster Alt Protein Project is an interdisciplinary community for students and faculty interested in stimulating alternative protein research and development. McMaster has already begun establishing itself as an alternative protein hub through research led by Canadian Research Chair in Biomicrofluidics, Dr. Ravi Selvaganapathy, which has set a precedent for building technical capacity. We aim to further contribute to an environmentally and socially sustainable food system in Canada and around the world by developing course materials, encouraging entrepreneurial innovation and collaboration with other chapters.
