In a marriage of powerful but controversial technologies, Geron Corp. said Tuesday that it has acquired Roslin Bio-Med, a spinoff of the Scottish institute responsible for the cloned sheep, Dolly. The goal is to combine the expertise of the two small biotechnology companies to clone human cells that can be used to repair damaged hearts, livers and kidneys--and perhaps one day grow replacement organs for transplantation. Menlo Park, Calif.

Geron Corp. and Advanced Cell Technology Inc. agreed to settle a patent dispute over a pioneering cloning technology that led to the creation of Dolly the sheep. Advanced Cell and the University of Massachusetts agreed to end their appeal and give up certain patents for animal cloning technology while keeping rights to a cloning method for human use, Advanced Cell said.
