S. Korean scientists to aid Americans in stem cell work

first_imgScientists in South Korea will help their American colleagues – frustrated by U.S. government barriers – create new lines of embryonic stem cells in an unusual partnership in the contentious field, researchers in both countries announced Wednesday. For the Americans, the new international consortium, which includes Britain, presents another avenue for working around the Bush administration’s refusal to fund most of the research. For the South Koreans, the project brings coveted international recognition of their leadership in this budding field. “I think this effort points out that science is done on a global scale,” said Dr. George Daley, of Children’s Hospital in Boston, who hopes to participate in the project. “We can establish restrictions here in the United States, but the science moves forward in other countries.” The new World Stem Cell Foundation will be led by pioneering stem cell biologist Hwang Woo-suk at Seoul National University. It will open its first branches in the United States and Britain, Hwang said in an Associated Press interview before the announcement. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “When the use of these stem cells is limited to a particular country, it takes much too long to create technologies usable for the whole humanity,” Hwang said. “By creating a global network, we plan to share stem cells created in each country and share information on those stem cells.” The South Koreans are working closely with Dr. Gerald Schatten, a cell biologist at the University of Pittsburgh. Referring to moral misgivings of critics who oppose the destruction of embryos, he compared stem cell science to organ donations, which eventually won widespread acceptance. “We hope that the same thing will happen here,” he was quoted as saying in a staff-written commentary released Wednesday by the New England Journal of Medicine. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
