UCL IHA Virtual Symposium #2: Neurodegeneration in Flies
September 10, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
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. This seminar series brings together researchers from around the globe who study neurodegenerative diseases and age-related neurodegeneration using flies. Our sessions will feature world-leading researchers in the field, as well as early-career researchers, sharing their latest findings in neurodegeneration.
