NEW YORK, July 31, 2003 ( – A leading researcher in the artificial conception industry has implanted male cells into a female embryo in order to experiment with a hybrid human life form.  Dr. Norbert Gleicher told a meeting of scientists, “The basic experiment was to see can one transplant from one embryo to another. The purpose … was not to create a mixture of female or male embryo, that was just a tool to answer the question, whether the transplant worked,” Gleicher said. He said the experiment showed that cells from a sibling of the opposite sex can be transplanted into an embryo to prevent genetic diseases.  Gleicher founded the Center for Human Reproduction (CHR) in both New York and Chicago and directs the New York branch.  For newswire coverage:   For more about CHR:
