Travel awards available for PhD students to attend Neurofly2024

Posted by , on 3 June 2024

Neurofly2024 is the main conference on neurobiology of Drosophila, taking place every 2 years, and has been rotating across Europe for the last 40 years. The Company of Biologists Travel Bursaries will cover the registration fees of PhD students, enabling a wider participation in the Neurofly.

We have now advertised the bursaries, please visit:


The 20th Biennial European Drosophila Research Conference (Neurofly) will take place from 2 to 6 September 2024 at the beautiful University of Birmingham campus, in UK.

Neurofly 2024 will allow the opportunity for researchers from across the globe to meet to discuss their latest research and observations principally on the neurobiology of Drosophila but also including studies using other invertebrate model organisms. Drosophila offers major advantages for neurobiological research due to the wealth of genetic tools to observe and manipulate the nervous system. We aim to provide a venue for wide-ranging discussions and interactions between junior and senior researchers in an inclusive interdisciplinary environment that will allow the exchange of results, ideas and new concepts. A wide range of sessions will include Developmental and cellular neuroscience, Brain homeostasis and metabolism, Brain disease, injury and ageing, Gene expression and molecular neuroscience, Neural circuits and behaviour, Plasticity and remodelling. 

We have lined up eight wonderful plenary speakers and the rest of talks will be selected from abstract submissions, allowing exciting, emerging research to be presented by early career and established researchers. We will also have a practical demo workshop on bridging connectomics and transcriptomics. And fun activities, including a trip to Stratford and the gala conference dinner.

Registration early bird and abstract submission deadline is 16 June 2024.

Please be aware that lecture theatre capacity is limited: please register with time to avoid disappointments.
