Brigitte Boisselier also known as Brigitte Roehr, is a French chemist and Raelian religious leader best known for her claim to have overseen the creation of the first human clone. A native of Champagne-Ardenne, she studied chemistry in France and the United States, earning two PhD’s.
From 1984 to 1997, she lived near Paris and worked as a research chemist and a sales manager for Air Liquid. She embraced Raelism in 1992; the group was unpopular in France and her conversion led to tensions with those around her.
Five years later, she joined Clonaid, a Raelian organization that sought to clone a human. After her service as their scientific director was publicized, she lost her position with Air Liquid and focused on cloning full-time.
