Neurobiology of Drosophila - USA

External Event - 1st to 5th Oct 2019

We are pleased to announce the eighteenth biennial Neurobiology of Drosophila meeting, which will be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The meeting will begin at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, October 1, and will conclude after lunch on Saturday, October 5. This year’s meeting will continue the bi-annual tradition of providing a forum for presentation of the most exciting and cutting-edge research currently ongoing in the field of neuroscience using the Drosophila model. With sessions ranging from synaptic transmission and neuronal development all the way to higher brain function and disease modeling, the program will provide broad coverage of the field from molecular to systems neuroscience. In addition, sessions focusing on technological innovations will supplement the program, allowing for dissemination of new methods that are revolutionizing neuroscience research.
