A court in South Korea has convicted a disgraced cloning scientist of fraud over his stem-cell research.
Hwang Woo-suk's work had raised hopes of finding cures for diseases such as Alzheimer's, the BBC reports.
But his research was declared bogus in 2005 and the 56-year-old was put on trial the following year for embezzlement and accepting money under false pretences.
He will be sentenced at a later hearing.
Hwang's research, which purported to create the world's first cloned dog, made him a South Korean hero until revelations that it was fabricated shocked the nation.
