One method of creating new embryonic stem cell lines involves placing the nucleus from an adult cell into an egg and allow that egg to divide. This process, called nuclear transfer, has worked in many animals but hasn't yet been successful in humans. Dr. Robert Blelloch has worked on nuclear transfer in mice and other animals. He is assistant professor of Urology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Pathology and a member of the UCSF Institute for Regeneration Medicine.
