TOKYO—A top Japanese scientist who co-authored disputed stem-cell papers committed suicide by hanging himself, police said Tuesday.
Yoshiki Sasai, deputy director of the Riken Center for Developmental Biology, guided research published in the journal Nature that purported to show a revolutionary method of creating stem cells by dipping cells in a mild acid solution. The research, published in January, was quickly challenged. Nature retracted the papers in July, saying they contained inaccurate data and other flaws that undermined their conclusions.

Scientists have identified a long-sought fertility protein that allows sperm to dock to the surface of an egg. The finding, an important step in understanding the process that enables conception, could eventually spawn new forms of birth control and treatments for infertility.
“It’s very important, because we now know two of the proteins that are responsible for the binding of sperm to the egg,” says Paul Wassarman, a biochemist and developmental biologist at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York.

Though the world’s attention has focused on Iran‘s advancing nuclear program, Iranian scientists have moved to the forefront in embryonic stem cell research, according to a recent joint study by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Controversial in the United States, embryonic stem cell research was embraced in 2002 by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s conservative religious leader. President Obama has recently adopted a similar policy, reversing restrictions that George W. Bush’s administration imposed because of the implications for destroying potential human lives.
