Event description

Join Dr. Jess Krieger, the CEO and co-founder of Ohayo Valley, to learn about a research framework from which to characterize and compare two of the main cell types in meat: skeletal muscle cells and intramuscular fat cells. Methods will be presented to analyze the difference between porcine and bovine cells, what characterizes their sensory and pigment properties, and how to efficiently grow them in 3D skeletal muscle tissue form. Material properties of raw cellular material will be described in the development of a blended cultivated burger prototype. Dr. Krieger will also address an industry perspective with respect to cultivated meat product development.

After the seminar, we encourage you to join our optional networking event for alternative protein enthusiasts! You can talk about your research, your company, any challenges you’re facing in your work, or your reflections on the webinar. The networking sessions start at 2:15pm EST and require a separate registration. We hope to see you there!
