Bill Gates-backed company claims that breast milk from the lab is only 3 to 5 years away
CNN Business cofounder Leila Strickland said that “Human milk” may be available in three to five years from a Bill Gates-backed lab.
BIOMILQ aims to produce human milk-producing cells much like some companies produce lab-grown meat.
Strickland said that she came up with the idea after having difficulty breastfeeding her first child
The startup, which is based in North Carolina, received $3.5 million from Breakthrough Energy Ventures. This fund was started by Bill Gates. The Times reported this news in June 2020.
