ABSTRACT
Looks at South Korea's biomedical researchers who, unhampered by politics, do world-class research cheaply. Tediousness of the lab work for lab workers who often work 14 hour days, seven days a week; Publication of a paper in the journal "Science" that shocked biomedical researchers and put South Korea at the center of the controversial stem-cell therapy field; Seoul National University's College of Veterinary Medicine's budget of less than $2 million, which comes from philanthropists and revenues from tuition; Fears associated with cloning.
