48th annual Drosophila Research Conference, Philadelphia Marriott, March 7-11, 2007

How much can you learn from flies? A LOT! Drosophila models of human diseases have been acknowledged as useful tools in learning about human health. Come listen to top scientists discuss how anthrax affects signaling pathways in Drosophila; what protects Drosophila brain neurons against Prion-dependent neurodegeneration; how symptoms of Parkinson's Disease can be expressed in terms of dopamine levels in Drosophila brains; how the analysis of molecular pathways involved in Alzheimer's disease in flies can lead to a key to unlocking one of the mysteries surrounding this disease in humans.

Come learn about two genes called "bubblegum" and "double bubble" that play a role in embryogenesis and nervous system development in the Drosophilia and suggest a link to the human disease X-adrenoleukodystrophy. Find out how dietary restriction can impact longevity in flies as well as in mice and much more.

The conference will begin on Wednesday evening, March 7 with an opening session from 7:00 PM until 9:00 pm. Registration for credentialed members of the press with a letter of assignment is complimentary.
