    Default Japanese Scientist Pushing Boundary on Human/Animal Hybrids

    A Japanese scientist is one step closer to beginning unprecedented experiments that could develop human-animal embryo hybrids.

    Hiromitsu Nakauchi, a professor at the Institute of Medical Science at the University of Tokyo and the Department of Genetics at Stanford University, has just received approval from a committee of scientists working for the Japanese government to insert human stem cells into rodents in an attempt to grow a human pancreas in the animal.

    Though the decision allows unprecedented access to long-term chimeric organ experiments, some scientists were concerned with the ethics of the decision. The biggest worry for bioethicists in the industry is the possibility of developing a human-animal hybrid with human cells in the brain, which would present a huge ethical issue in terms of its cognition and awareness.

    Well, this is just the first public announcement. I would assume this has been already been going on by military research entities for some time ...
    When you are one step ahead of the crowd, you are a genius.
    Two steps ahead, and you are deemed a crackpot.
