The global speaker bureau
Ian Wilmut is an English embryologist and is currently one of the leaders of the Queen's Medical Research Institute at the University of Edinburgh. He is best known as the man who played a supervisory role in the team that in 1996 first cloned a mammal, a Finn Dorset lamb named "Dolly". Dolly was the first clone derived from adult cells. She died early, in 2003, at 6 years old. In 2005, Ian received the licence to clone human embryos for research that may one day help find a cure for motor neuron disease. In 2008 he received the Honour of Knighthood for his services to science.
"Dr Wilmut offers his audiences an insight into a future that only a short while ago was considered science-fiction."
