Schatten quoted by Nature on GFP in marmosets

One year after the discoverers of the green fluorescent protein won the Nobel Prize in chemistry ( Japanese-born Osamu Shimomura of the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, Martin Chalfie of Columbia University in New York and Roger Tsien of the University of California, San Diego), other workers (Erika Sasaki and Hideyuki Okano of the Keio University School of Medicine in Japan ) put GFP in marmosets. The name of Gerald Schatten came up:

"The birth of this transgenic marmoset baby is undoubtedly a milestone," stem cell expert Dr. Gerald Schatten, of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and Shoukhrat Mitalipov, of Oregon Health and Sciences University, wrote in a commentary in Nature.

One recalls Schatten's involvement with fraudster Hwang Woo Suk.


***Separately see Michael Hiltzik's:

Investor-funded research could bring march of science to a standstill


**Of the marmosets:

Gene for glowing
