Ian Wilmut, the famed Scottish biologist who created Dolly the cloned sheep, will be speaking as part of the Gates Distinguished Lecture Series.

Wilmut soared to international prominence in February 1997 when Dolly, a baby lamb created from the cells of an adult sheep, was revealed to the world. Dolly was the first genetic replica of a living creature created from cells from an adult animal. The accomplishment sparked amazement and controversy as scientists, philosophers, ethicists and religious leaders perceived the potential to extend such work to humans.
