General context

Due to Coronavirus spreading in Belgium and Europe, VIB has made the difficult decision to postpone the Dutch-Belgian Drosophila Meeting until 27 April 2021. We will contact you in due time to register for the event next year.

 

After the successful 2019 edition at the Donders Institute of Nijmegen, VIB is hosting the 10th Dutch-Belgian Drosophila meeting in Leuven. Meet all Dutch and Belgian Drosophila groups incl. PIs, and learn about various topics, from cell biology, immunity & physiology, single cell sequencing, neurobiology & behavior, to human disease modelling. The keynote lecture on neural information processing at the level of individual neurons and small neural circuits will be given by Alexander Borst from Max-Planck-Institute of Neurobiology, Germany. The perfect opportunity for networking and knowledge exchange! Participants from other countries are also very welcome to attend!

Event intended for

This training targets scientists who want to keep up-to-date with the latest evolutions in the Drosophila field. The training is aimed at PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, technicians or other scientists with a molecular biology background.
