Tissue engineering is a method of growing tissues that has been developed initially for medical applications. This emerging medical field weaves together several fields of science and engineering to make tissues and organs that can mimic, restore, maintain or improve body function.
Modern Meadow’s scientific team pioneered some of the technologies behind medical tissue engineering and invented a tissue engineering technique based on bioprinting, the 3D assembly of tissues driven by computer controlled processes.
We are now applying the latest advances in tissue engineering to culture leather and meat without requiring the raising, slaughtering and transporting animals. From a technical perspective, our approaches integrate innovations in cell culture, biofabrication and bioreactors.
We are working with leading artists, designers and professional chefs to make early samples of cultured leather and meat of the highest quality.
