Researchers hoped that ailments-related damages, such as those caused by spinal cord injuries, diabetes or a genetic immune disease, can be repaired using these cells.
Barely a year before, his team just shocked the world by cloning a human embryo.
Moreover, Hwang wants to move his research into making embryonic stem cells grow into specific organs and tissues.
South Korean cloning pioneer Hwang Woo-suk and his researchers at Seoul National University have created the first embryonic stem cells that genetically match injured or sick patients, work that was published in the journal Science last month.
His current achievements confirmed that the stem cells, the building blocks of all bodily tissues, were unlikely to be rejected by the body’s immune system.
