UCL IHA Virtual Symposium: Neurodegeneration in Flies

05 October 2023, 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.

This event is free.

Event Information

Open to







Teresa Niccoli

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.
