The Clean Meat Revolution

With Eric Schulze, PhD, Molecular Biologist and VP of Product and Regulation at Memphis Meats

September 18, 2018 | Doors Open @ 5PM | All Ages

$5 advance purchase for guaranteed seats; $5 suggested donation at the door. Tickets will be available online or at the OMSI front desk until 11:59pm the day prior to the event; see below for details.


For the last 10,000 years, humans have been making meat from animals. And while the result has been delicious, the way meat is produced poses some serious problems for the environment, animal welfare and human health. Memphis Meats is a startup developing a way to produce real meat by growing animal cells—without the need to feed, breed and slaughter actual animals. They’re on a mission to transform the way meat gets to the plate by making meat that is delicious, sustainable and better for the body.


This talk will cover the “why” and “how” behind Memphis Meats, as well as major events in the clean meat movement.


Dr. Eric Schulze is a molecular biologist, former Federal biotechnology regulator, educator, and science policy strategist. He is the current Vice President of Product and Regulation at Memphis Meats, where he leads the scientific design and development of Memphis Meats products as well as Federal regulatory, policy, and government affairs. Prior, Eric served for six years as a Federal regulator within the US Food and Drug Administration
