For the disgrace and shame he placed upon stem cell research in South Korea and for many stem cell research more generally, he should do some time in the slammer. Or at least that’s my view.
But Nature.com tells us that Woo Suk Hwang’s verdict is imminently on the horizon and that he may do jail time for violating that country’s bioethics law.
So while we wait on the edge of our seats for the gavel to drop in Seoul’s Central District Court Criminal Division, send in your comments. Should Hwang, arguably stem cell research’s most notorious not-yet-convicted crooks, go to jail?
