About this project
Nowadays, the main bottleneck of many biotech companies in the cellular agriculture industry is their culture media. The unsustainable and unethical nature of animal-serum based culture media makes them the biggest obstacle for these “clean-meat” products to reach public market. The vision of this project - Multus Media, is to create a new, animal-free growth medium using novel engineering techniques. By synthetically engineering new strains of yeast that are naturally rich in biological signalling compounds, we will be able to build a scalable process to produce all the key ingredients necessary for mammalian cell growth. We hope this will pave the way for innovation in food and healthcare industries, and ultimately accelerate the development of a sustainable future.
