Who doesn’t love meat? Summer BBQs and friends around the campfire enjoying a succulent, delicious burger, packed with protein. Yep, meat rocks. The only problem is meat comes with baggage—greenhouse gasses, environmental degradation, nutritional concerns, and the welfare of animals. But what if the meat we love could be a force for good, helping to reverse these challenges?
Omeat's mission is to pioneer game-changing solutions to the health, environmental, and animal-welfare challenges posed by animal agriculture. We’re developing a scalable approach to producing cultured meat – meat grown from cells, outside the animal -- that's every bit as delicious and nourishing as conventional meat.
We are led by Ali Khademhosseini, one of the top tissue engineers in the world, previously at Harvard and MIT for 16 years. We’re looking for team members who want to change history. Fellow visionaries ready to sink their teeth into one of the greatest challenges humanity faces, creating a new future -- a future full of hope with clear-running streams, teeming oceans, thriving wildlife, and healthy communities.
