Bruce Whitelaw is a Scottish geneticist, professor of animal biotechnology at the University of Edinburgh and the director of the Roslin Institute.[2]


Whitelaw received his BSc degree in medical microbiology in 1982 from the University of Edinburgh and his PhD in 1987 from the University of Glasgow for research on gene activation and the myc oncogene.[3][1]


After his PhD, Whitelaw joined the Agricultural and Food Research Council (AFRC)'s Animal Breeding Research Organisation. He remained with the ABRO as it became the Institute of Animal Physiology and later the Roslin Institute.[3] He led the institute's mammalian transgenics work at the time Ian Wilmut, Keith Campbell and colleagues cloned Dolly the sheep and he later became the head of the Division of Developmental Biology.[4]

Whitelaw became interim director of the Roslin Institute in 2017 when David Hume stepped down,[5] and again in 2020 when Eleanor Riley resigned.[6] He was appointed to the role of director in April 2022.[2]
