20th Biennial European Drosophila Neurobiology Conference, University of Birmingham, UK, September 2nd - 6th 2024

Neurofly 2024 will allow the opportunity for researchers from across the globe to meet to discuss their latest research and observations principally on the neurobiology of Drosophila but also including studies using other invertebrate model organisms. Drosophila offers major advantages for neurobiological research due to the wealth of genetic tools to observe and manipulate the nervous system. We aim to provide a venue for wide-ranging discussions and interactions between junior and senior researchers in an inclusive interdisciplinary environment that will allow the exchange of results, ideas and new concepts. A wide range of sessions will include Nervous System Development, Neural Circuits and Synapses, Behaviour, Metabolism, Neurodegeneration, Regeneration, Aging, Injury and Disease Models. The majority of the talks will be selected from abstracts allowing a range of emerging research to be presented from junior and senior researchers.
