2. Circadian Rhythms and Sleep in Drosophila

Venue: Crick Lab, First Floor
Date: 19-20 May, 26-27 May
Time: 12pm – 6pm

The 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology was awarded to three scientists who study circadian rhythms in the common vinegar fly. Why was this prize awarded for work on such a distant relative of humans? What are circadian rhythms and why are they so important to our bodies? Come see a live demonstration using the same classic behavioral detection machines used to win the Nobel Prize, and talk to Singapore scientists who work with this crucially important biomedical research creature.
