Scientist Using Stem Cells To Grow A Hamburger In His Lab

Filed under: FoodScience!

Burger from the lab

Forget grass-fed beef. How about Petri dish grown beef instead?

Mark Post, a vascular biologist at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands, thinks he'll be able to grow a hamburger in his lab in one year's time by using stem cells harvested from leftover animal material from the slaughterhouse floor.

Sounds kinda gross at first, but if it works, this process could eventually save countless animals' lives
