Coming of Age: The Legacy of Dolly at 20 (public lecture)

On Thursday 1st September we spent the evening at Surgeons’ Hall with Professor Sir Ian Wilmut (University of Edinburgh), Professor Angelika Schnieke (Technical University Munich) and Nobel Prize Laureate Professor Shinya Yamanaka (Kyoto University) as they discussed the impact of Dolly the Sheep on science, twenty years after her birth.

Visitors heard inspiring talks about Dolly and cloning, stem cell research and the uses of genetically modified livestock and had a chance to put their questions to our prestigious panel.

After the talks the discussions continued at our drinks reception, which included opportunities to talk to researchers from The Roslin Institute and the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine at the University of Edinburgh.

If you missed the event, recordings of all the talks are available here.
