IHA Virtual Symposium: Neurodegeneration in Flies

24 June 2021, 4:00 pm–5:00 pm

drosophila neurodegeneration

This seminar series brings together researchers from around the globe who study neurodegenerative diseases and age-related neurodegeneration using flies.

Event Information

Open to



Nathan Woodling



The fruit fly Drosophila is an incredibly useful model organism for studying neurodegenerative disease due to its short lifespan and wide array of genetic tools.

Our sessions will feature world-leading researchers in the field, as well as early-career researchers, sharing their latest findings in neurodegeneration.

All sessions will be held on Thursdays at 16:00 London, UK time, dates follow below.

The next event will be on the 24th of June 2021.

In an effort to keep conversations going after the talks, we have set up a Slack workspace for Neurodegeneration in Flies. Please join in to post and respond to follow-up questions for speakers, job adverts, requests for advice or collaboration, and general conversation about the joys of working with flies!
