Kristopher Gasteratos

Founder & President

Kristopher is a former student, scholar, and researcher of the Faculty of Arts & Sciences at Harvard University. Kristopher started his career in cellular agriculture in 2015 after his research in a tissue engineering lab. This inspired him to to conduct the first and largest market research on cellular agriculture spanning 3 years and multiple continents, which led to results that escalated investor and public interest in clean meat and cellular agriculture globally.

His ambition to accelerate cellular agriculture then brought him to Harvard where he became the first cellular agriculture researcher and scholar at the University and the Ivy League. In August 2017, Kristopher published the first entry of the Neomnivore Trilogy: Nature & the Neomnivore. This literature, which served as the first comprehensive environmental report on cellular agriculture, ranked as a top trending work at Harvard among all publications at the university and placed cellular agriculture into the international spotlight.

In 2016 he began the initial framework of CAS, leading to a two year journey developing the programming at CAS, along with a website which would provide the platform to build an international movement. Overall, his dynamic insight on cellular agriculture has contributed to his authoring excerpts in cellular agriculture books/articles around the world like “Clean Meat” and interviews for media outlets like Fortune, the San Francisco Chronicle, and clean meat documentaries like Bite to the Future. As a world renown expert on cellular agriculture, Kristopher’s speaking engagements in the past range from leading international discussions giving guest lectures at Harvard University, to talks on clean meat and cellular agriculture at barbershops.

As the President of CAS, Kristopher leads all executive, advisory, and fellowship directives, in addition to all program development & management at CAS. In addition to his work with CAS, Kristopher is in the process of completing Humanity & the Neomnivore, and is co-authoring History & the Neomnivore with CAS Fermentation Specialist, Colton Biehl. He also serves as an adjunct researcher at Harvard Law School and is co-authoring a project with Chris Bryant, Director of the Social Science Division, exploring the perception of naturalness for clean meat.
