This project aimed to develop methods for the derivation of stem cells from embryos produced by cell nuclear replacement and to provide new opportunities for the study of inherited diseases in which the genetic cause has not yet been identified. Embryo stem cells were derived from cells donated by patients with Motor Neuron Disease whose condition could not be linked to known genetic errors that cause the disease. The project cpmmenced in January 2005. The license was granted for three years in April 2005.
