    The effects of the allegations on the stem-cell field and on Hwang’s research are unclear. On 15 November, after the news of Schatten’s separation, the Korean government laid out plans to invest 11.5 billion won in the World Stem Cell Hub, an international research network to have been led by Hwang. But it also proposed to detach the hub from Seoul National University and make it an independent body. Many potential overseas collaborators have said their plans are on hold until the allegations are resolved.
    How these events will affect Hwang’s team’s ability to publish is another open topic. “It’s pretty clear that the editor of any journal would be on heightened alert if they received a piece of work from them, and would probably scrutinize it very carefully for the ethics of the work at the very least,” says Gregory Curfman, executive editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.
