Scientist who cloned Dolly says Hwang is a baaaaaaah~d man

Sorry about the title. I'm always a sucker for a bad pun.

Anyway, the Korea Times reports that University of Edinburgh Professor Ian Wilmut, the man who cloned Dolly the sheep and one of beleaguered cloning scientist Hwang Woo-suk's "last staunch supporters," has said that Hwang does not deserve a second chance.
I do not think that he should lead a team again because of the lies that he has told.
He also added that there is promise for cloning in Korea, saying, "there are other people in the university and I hope that Korea will continue to have an interest in this technology."

According to the KT, Wilmut "admitted that Hwang and his crew have done advanced work but would not confirm Hwang’s reiterated claim that his team retains the world’s top cloning technology in gently squeezing genetic materials from human eggs." Sphere: Related Content


  1. If Dr. Hwang's research fund misuse is finalized, he will end up in a prison cell. From private people and institutes, he received and amassed research fund of about US$ 9,198,966 except government fund. My Korean friend donated about US$ 200 to Dr. Hwang, I heard.

  2. Hwang should be hung upside down by his testicles and slowly lowered into a vat of boiling rat urine.

    The man is evil, through and through. He gave hope to so many that had none, then crushed it into a bloody pulp by his heinous behavior. He is a pox on society.
