Marco Springmann said: "Lab meat doesn't solve anything from an environmental perspective, since the energy emissions are so high,"

John Lynch said: "In the past year, we've seen more hype and investment around cultured meat,"

John Lynch said: "We'll need to take a step back and urge a bit more caution if environmental messaging continues to be a big part of advertising for cultured meat," "The interest of the companies is making it clear how will they produce in an environmentally sustainable way"

Lab-grown meat will replicate the taste and consistency of traditional meat. Many expect the move to the lab will especially appeal to people concerned about the role land-based animal agriculture has in accelerating climate change. But as investments and research ramp up for lab-grown meat, more.......

How single cell proteomics data can drive CAR-Treg-based therapies—an interview with Leonardo Ferreira External link

Leonardo Ferreira said: “Most T cells are dedicated to defending our body from pathogenic invaders and cancer. They recognize peptides derived from viruses, bacteria, or proteins mutated in cancer and target the cells presenting those peptides for destruction. T regs are dedicated to suppressing immune responses and maintaining homeostasis of the immune system; they are not dedicated to searching and destroying,”

Leonardo Ferreira said: “CRISPR allows one to integrate the CAR gene in the native T cell receptor (TCR) locus. This means that, unlike lentiviral and retroviral transduction, which introduces multiple copies of the CAR gene per cell at random places in the genome driven by a non-physiological promoter, a CAR knocked in the TCR locus is under the native gene regulation of the TCR and is present at a controlled copy number. This makes a big difference in terms of the uniformity of CAR expression, T cell expansion, and function,”

Leonardo Ferreira said: “Single cell analyses are key to developing and validating any kind of cell therapy,” “For CAR T regs in particular, it is key to perform single cell techniques to accurately trace T reg stability, cytokine production, and receptor expression, as T regs are known to be heterogeneous”

Leonardo Ferreira said: “T regs secrete tissue repair molecules,” “There are currently clinical trials using T regs against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a neurodegenerative disease affecting motor neurons. In the future, I predict we will be able to use CAR-T regs not only to suppress autoimmunity and prevent organ rejection, but also to treat inflammation and aid with wound healing and regeneration”

Leonardo Ferreira said: “As an immunologist, I tend to favor protein over RNA,”
