A CDE Definition
Lab-grown hamburger. Culminating years of research, in 2013, vascular biologist Mark Post at Maastricht University (Netherlands) succeeded in growing the first meat in a petri dish using muscle-specific stem cells from a cow. The project was funded by Google founder Sergey Brin to pioneer a new way to produce meat in order to accommodate the planet's growing population and not perpetuate the compassionless and antibiotic-laden methods of raising cattle.
