Fruit Flies and Neurodegenerative Disorders: What Can the Fruit Fly Tell Us about Human Disease?
Kenneth Colodner, Assistant Professor of Neuroscience and Behavior
The fruit fly is more than just a pest that you try to keep out of your kitchen — it can actually be used as a disease model, helping scientists understand diseases like Alzheimer's disease. In this lecture, Professor Colodner will discuss the rationale behind using the fruit fly to study human disease and explain how it is done. He will also present recent findings that highlight how these models are used to identify therapeutic targets for these disorders.
