UCL IHA Virtual Symposium #4: Neurodegeneration in Flies

October 8 @ 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.

Presented live via Zoom at: https://zoom.us/j/94707339150?pwd=a2Eza3hVRGVYY1l5dkhVQWVDUndiQT09

Meeting ID: 947 0733 9150 // Passcode: 954395

All sessions will be held on Thursdays at 16:00 London, UK time
