Israeli scientist growing meat in a lab gets rare honor in D.C.

(JTA) – The Israeli biomedical engineer who created cultured meat technology was inducted as a fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering. Yaacov Nahmias of Hebrew University was honored in a ceremony Monday in Washington, D.C. The top 2 percent of biomedical engineers are accepted to the institute. He invented Future Meat, the process for growing meat in a cultured medium that could reduce the need for slaughterhouses and has become a topic of conversation in the world of kashrut. Nachmias, 43, also founded Tissue Dynamics, which has created a platform that mimics human biology to provide toxicity and efficacy screening services. The technology will enable thousands of laboratories to study fatty liver disease, viral hepatitis, drug toxicity and liver cancer at a much lower cost.
