Our flagship academic program includes the world's first undergraduate degree (a minor) in cellular agriculture and a graduate certificate program. TUCCA also trains master's students, PhDs, and postdoctoral researchers through the Department of Biomedical Engineering, the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and other schools here at Tufts. While the bulk of current students are trained through the School of Engineering, TUCCA is an interdisciplinary effort involving five schools and eleven departments. Our goal is to graduate a pipeline of talent and expertise for the field that can enter the workforce in diverse and varied positions. Alumni work at cellular agriculture start-ups as well as traditional food companies.
