MEDIA ADVISORY: JHU Expert Available on Lab-Grown Meat
Aleph Farms of Israel announced today unveiled the world’s first lab-grown steak, a steak grown in a petri dish that has the taste and texture of one that comes from a real cow.
Jan Dutkiewicz, a postdoctoral fellow in political science at Johns Hopkins University who has researched the emergence of cellular agriculture, or “lab-grown meat,” and its potential to transform the American food landscape, is available to talk about the new steak and offer perspective on the development.
Dutkiewicz is also writing a book called Capitalist Pigs: The Making of the Corporate Meat Animal. The book examines how the American meat industry is trying to a produce a commodity for changing market conditions, from conception through consumption.
