ABSTRACT

This paper examines the current status of, and issues surrounding, stem cell research in Korea. It is noted that ordinary citizens in Korea are being misled into spending large sums of money on unverified claims regarding stem cell research and that procedures are being prepared to protect people from such unverified claims. It is argued that scientists have responsibilities to provide correct information to the public regarding their research results and professional societies should establish a verification system in which the efficacy and safety of stem cell therapy can be assessed accurately. In addition, it is claimed that governmental authorities have a role to play in developing this line research and delivering accurate information on it so that citizens can form more reasonable expectations concerning scientific progress in the area of stem cell research.
