Professor Alan Colman -the “Dolly” man, was the first in the world to clone a sheep.
Even after cloning of Dolly, he still pursues research relentlessly. He is an inspiration
to many stem cell scientists out there who are tirelessly researching on the many
faces of stem cells. Interestingly, he is a fan of Manchester United. I guess the
reasons being that he was born there and that team is always winning matches. Currently
he is working in Singapore. We are indeed privileged to meet him. Although the meeting
was brief, we are all deeply inspired by him. Though he is world renowned, he carries
no air and is most willing to meet us.
The Year 1996
Dolly the sheep the first mammal is cloned using somatic nuclear transfer technique
It is a great year. A year full of excitement and hope. The team is also very fortunate
to meet Professor Alan Coleman...
