Technology surrounds us. Join us for two exciting talks on where technology is headed next, as we discuss lab grown meat and the importance of diagnostic testing.

Out of the lab into the frying pan – the science behind lab-grown meat

Dr Ricardo Gouveia (Research Fellow, Biosciences)
@RMartinsGouveia
In a few years meat produced purely from animal cells may become part of our regular diet, a prospect that raises complex technical, socio-economic, and ethical questions. However, and despite increasing media coverage, public discussion about this topic is still rare. In this talk I will share how our pioneering work at Newcastle University is addressing some of the major challenges in this field, and describe how well-done science can help put raw misconceptions to rest.
