Professor Mark Post at Maastricht University in the Netherlands is using stem cells to create meat.
Post hopes to have the first fully synthetic hamburger later this year. So far, Post's team has grown small chunks of muscle.
Blood and artificially grown fat will be mixed with the muscle to create the hamburger meat.
Post says the technology could reduce live animal needs by 60-percent. He says it could also improve the future food supply.
There is concern that global livestock supplies can not keep up with an expanding population.
