Introduction

Cellular agriculture seeks to advance tissue engineering for the production of affordable, nutritious, protein-rich foods. Researchers and manufacturers translate cellular agriculture research into food industry innovation that has positive environmental and societal benefits.

The interdisciplinary program is administered by the Department of Biomedical Engineering with collaboration from the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Engineering, the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.

Program Highlights

With the field of cellular agriculture swiftly growing worldwide, our four-course certificate trains skilled workers to advance research and commercial products in fields as varied as food science, biotechnology, tissue engineering, synthetic biology, biomedical engineering, and more.

Students learn to translate cellular agriculture research on sustainable alternatives to products like meat, eggs, dairy, and leather into food industry innovation and commercially available products. Join a new generation of researchers with a foundational education in the methodologies, context, and implications of cellular agriculture technology.
