Where is alternative protein research happening?

Public research is critical to accelerating the development of modernized meat production systems. We want to highlight the strategies that pioneering scientists are using to build the scientific scaffolding for a healthy, sustainable, and just food supply—and we hope their work will inspire others, like you, to do the same.

Our Scientific Research Database gives you a bird’s-eye view of where public alternative protein science is being conducted today. Each lab in this project is actively involved in alternative protein research or research that enables protein innovation. To learn how to make the most of this tool, watch our brief how-to video.

If their work inspires you to do alternative protein research of your own, check out our competitive research grant program and research funding database for opportunities to fund your project. If you’re a scientist looking for potential collaborative partners, a student looking to join a lab, or a member of a commercial enterprise looking to work more closely with academics, check out our Collaborative Research Directory. This directory comprises researchers who are interested in working collectively to advance alternative protein science.
