IHA Virtual Symposium: Neurodegeneration in Flies

16 May 2024, 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.  

Time: May 16, 2024 04:00 PM London

Speaker: Prof Maggie Pearce, Biological & Biomedical Sciences & Research, Rowan University, USA

Talk title: "Roles for glia in protein aggregate spreading in neurodegenerative disease."

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!
