The Parisian fly community is pleased to welcome you to the 31st French Drosophila Meeting.

It will take place from the 7th to the 11th of November 2017 in the Presqu’Ile de Giens at the Belambra Club « Les Criques ».

The Annual French Drosophila Meeting is a meeting gathering scientists using Drosophila as a model system to address key questions of Biology, both fundamental (morphogenesis, polarity, regulation of gene expression, etc…) and more applied (human disease models, stem cells, etc… ).

It contributes to promote interactions and colloborations within the community. This 2017 edition will span over four days, and will be composed of two plenary sessions and 8 thematic sessions covering different aspects of developmental and cell biology (see the conference programme). Our objective being to organize a conference of high scientific level within a friendly and relax atmosphere, we have successfully invited 8 prominent internationally renowned experts.

This meeting is traditionally very open and lively, and we have taken care of preserving enough time for discussion and mixing between students and researchers at different stages of their career.
