Contest Directions: Geneticists of Harvard University received millions of dollars of government grants to
bring Neanderthals back to life. This will be done with the help of the excavated Neanderthal DNA that will be put into human stem cells, that will develop into Neanderthal embryo that will then be implanted into a surrogate mother. The last step is the most challenging one, says Harvard professor George Church, "We need to find a woman who is adventurous enough to become a Neanderthal surrogate mother and give birth to the first Neanderthal baby since they became extinct 33,000 years ago."
So far there are no volunteers for the position of the surrogate Neanderthal mother, but Harvard is positive they will find her. "The surrogate 'Neanderthal mother' will get huge media coverage and will become famous. Plus the job pays really well too", adds Prof. Church.
