Published: May 23, 2005

The scientist who cloned Dolly the Sheep is to ask Scottish women volunteers to donate their eggs for stem cell research. Professor Ian Wilmut, from the Roslin Institute (Edinburgh), Midlothian, said he would also join forces with South Korean researchers who last week announced they had achieved a major breakthrough in growing stem cells cloned from patients. Professor Wilmut is aiming to grow stem cells from Scotland's first cloned human embryo by the end of the year, reports the Scotsman.
