Since Dolly first made headlines in 1996, what have the last two decades taught us about genetic cloning?
Following in her footsteps, there now stands a unique flock of cloned sheep, all derived from the same cell line as Dolly. The affectionately named 'Nottingham Dollies' are currently under the care of Professor Kevin Sinclair, an expert in developmental biology at The University of Nottingham.
On Tuesday 17 October, Professor Sinclair brings his expert knowledge to The University of Liverpool to deliver the next Science & Society lecture 'What have we learnt from Dolly the Sheep (and Debbie, Denise & Diane)?'
Kevin Sinclair, PhD, DSc is Professor of Developmental Biology at the University of Nottingham. His lab investigates metabolic programming during early mammalian development, where epigenetic outcomes are determined in embryonic cells and tissues, and long-term developmental consequences assessed in offspring. Studies include work with rodents, farm animals and humans.
After the lecture there will be a Q&A Session, followed by an informal drinks and networking session.
