2nd Cellular Agriculture Conference
~ Practical application is in sight! The forefront of cellular agriculture and cultured meat~!

Riverness will sponsor the event.The 8th Main Meeting of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields(Friday and Saturday, March 8-9, 2019) within the "2nd Cellular Agriculture Conference - Practical Applications in sight! The Forefront of Cellular Agriculture and Cultured Meat" (session partner: Nippon Ham Co., Ltd.) will be held within the "2nd Cellular Agriculture Conference - Practical Application in Sight!


The 8th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/2019

Cellular agriculture is the production of agricultural, livestock, and marine products through cell culture. A typical example is "cell-cultured meat," which is produced by combining muscle cell culture and regenerative medicine technology, and is expected to be a decisive factor in solving the world's food problems.
Since the first Cellular Agriculture Conference last year, social interest in this field has finally increased, and we are holding this conference in the hope that this year's conference will again bring about a layered collaboration.
In this session, Professor Yuji Harada, who is conducting research at Tokyo Women's Medical University on the application of regenerative medicine technology to food production in space, will introduce the front lines of cellular agriculture, which is gaining depth in elementary schools, universities, companies, and the government, including its development in the field of education, the latest trends in corporate development, and government perspectives on food safety regulations. The latest developments in the field of cellular agriculture in education, the latest trends in corporate development, and government perspectives on food safety regulations.

We will have a program of discussions among researchers, venture companies, and large corporations from various perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
Audience members are invited to attend the conference. Please visit the conference website (see below).

Project Lecturer, Institute for Advanced Biomedical Sciences, Tokyo Women's Medical University
Yuji Haraguchi
Together with Professor Tatsuya Shimizu, Director of the Institute, and in collaboration with Waseda University, he succeeded in producing thick three-dimensional cardiac muscle tissue by co-culturing algae and animal cells. They demonstrated the possibility of producing organ-like tissue ex vivo by using light energy. He aims to establish a new treatment method by applying a new tissue engineering method, "cell sheet engineering," to regenerative medicine, and is also conducting research on the application of regenerative medicine technology to food production in space.


Doctoral Program, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, The University of Tokyo
Ms. Yuki Tanaka
Mr. Hanyu invited me to join the Shoijinmeat Project in April 2016, saying, "Why don't we do a cell culture class for elementary school students?" and joined the Shoijinmeat Project in April 2016. He has been working on cell culture experiments at home to establish a cell culture method that anyone can use. Together with Mr. Kaneko, Mr. Hanyu, and others, he established a cell culture method focusing on commercially available items, and in November 2018, he gave the world's first pure meat culture class at a high school in Tokyo.


Senior at Jiyuunomori Gakuen High School / Wild Scientist
Mr. Sota Kaneko
He first met Shojinmeat Project at a fab space in Tokyo, where he happened to be. He was attracted by the unique approach of the Shojinmeat Project, which was promoting DIY cell culture at home. Mr. Kaneko, who was good at electronics, focused on the incubator, which was expensive for its simple structure, and successfully built it himself. He and Mr. Tanaka, who will also be speaking at the conference, are working together to develop low-cost educational materials for the general public.


NEST Project Second Master Course Cellular Agriculture Laboratory
Yuya Ishikawa, Haruka Inoue, Shinji Sato, and Miharu Moroi
The Cellular Agriculture Team conducts research under the NEST Project, a program adopted by the JST Junior Doctor Training School. The team aims to solve the world's food problem by cultivating edible fish cells through cellular agriculture. They are also actively discussing how cell-cultured food can be spread and accepted by people.


CTO, Integriculture, Inc.
Mr. Kazuko Kawashima
D. (Agriculture) from Hiroshima University in 2012, has been a Baylor College of Medicine Fellow, a JSPS (DC1, PD) Fellow, co-founded the Citizen Science organization Co-Lab and the Shojinmeat Project, and co-founded Integrative Culture Co. Co-founded Integrative Culture Inc. His research focuses on endocrinology, and he invented the CulNet System, an inexpensive, large-scale cell culture system, which he aims to use to create a platform for anyone to participate in cell agriculture.


Naoki Shinoda
B.S. (Biotechnology), Osaka University. D. in Agriculture from the University of Tokyo. Worked in food safety, quality, and regulatory affairs at national testing and analysis laboratories, food safety authorities, international organizations, and food-related companies.As a personal activity, he is a member of the Shojinmeat Food Safety and Regulatory Cluster, where he discusses and debates the safety of cellular meats and regulatory relationships.He has published numerous articles, patents, book and magazine articles, and lectures on food safety.


Manager, Corporate Strategy Department, Ajinomoto Co.
Mr. Akito Chinen
Joined Ajinomoto Co. At the research institute, he was engaged in the development of bacteria that efficiently produce amino acids, research and development of fermentation ingredients, and other activities. He then moved to the planning department, where he has been involved in building business alliances with start-ups and M&A operations. He aims to create innovative businesses that solve issues of "global sustainability," "food resources," and "healthy living" in collaboration with universities, startups, and companies from different industries.



Cellular Agriculture Conference Coordinator and Moderator
Risa Nishiyama
After working at an accounting firm, he returned to school to make a transition to the world of food and science. While thinking about his thesis theme, he encountered cellular agriculture. Fascinated by its futuristic ideas that foresaw a paradigm shift in food, agriculture, and manufacturing, and by its elegance in solving global issues such as the environment, food, and animal ethics in one fell swoop using sustainable methods, she joined the Shojinmeat Project. He is involved in the dissemination of information and the establishment of the Cellular Agriculture Association, with the aim of promoting cellular agriculture.
