Origins of ‘Cloned’ Dog Now in Question as Purported South Korean Creator Resigns in Disgrace.

While South Korea’s most famous scientist was resigning Friday in disgrace after his university said he faked stem cell research, one of his greatest purported breakthroughs was romping in the snow.

Snuppy, an Afghan hound that researcher Hwang Woo-suk said he cloned, was shown in photographs by South Korean media being led by a handler on a leash through the grounds of Seoul National University’s animal hospital, where the dog is now kept.

School: Human stem cell work faked
Monday, January 9, 2006

SEOUL, South Korea (AP)—The scientist who was once South Korea’s leading researcher faked his claim to have cloned human embryonic stem cells, the university where he conducted his research said Tuesday.

Hwang Woo-suk’s research team “did not have any proof to show that cloned embryonic stem cells were ever created,” an investigating panel at Seoul National University said in a report, disputing claims in Hwang’s 2004 paper in the journal Science purporting that he cloned a human embryo and extracted stem cells from it.

The panel found that Hwang’s claims last year to have created the world’s first cloned dog, however, were genuine.

The university made the announcements as it released the final results into its investigation of Hwang’s cloning research, which came into doubt late this year after accusations emerged that the research was fabricated.

The university concluded in its interim report last month that Hwang fabricated another article published last year. The university’s nine-member investigative panel said it could not find any of the 11 stem cell lines matched to patients, as Hwang had reported.

pretty much along the lines of the article Acci linked to but figured I would post as it does offer some more insight.

Cloned dog wasn’t hoax…..Nature confirms claim by South Korean scientist who duped competing journal about human stem cells.

Why would anyone fake stem cell research?  It’s not like people aren’t going to notice eventually.  I mean, faking results in high school biology, sure.  It’s not going to affect anything other than your grade.  Nobody’s going to be basing future work on what you wrote in 10th grade.  But how dumb do you have to be to think you’re going to get away with faking cutting edge research in a field as important as human stem cell tinkering?
