Drosophila facility researchers
The Drosophila/fly research community in Sheffield comprises over 30 researchers across nine research groups and is supported by a team of five technical staff.
Dr Natalia Bulgakova
Role of cell-cell adhesion in morphogenesis.
Dr Kyra Campbell
Cell plasticity in Development and Disease
Dr Iwan Evans
Using Drosophila to study macrophage behaviour.
Professor Mikko Juusola
Neural processing, particularly in the visual system of Drosophila. Efficient codes and circuitry, form-function relationships, attention, learning and memory.
Dr Andrew Lin
Sensory coding, synaptic plasticity, learning and memory in the Drosophila olfactory system.
Dr Mirre Simons
Why and how all life slowly deteriorates to eventually cause death.
We focus on the mortality response to dietary restriction and how mortality risk increases with age.
Professor David Strutt
Drosophila Cell Polarity.
Dr Ryan West
Molecular Mechanisms of Frontotemporal Dementia, Motor Neuron Disease and Parkinson’s
Dr Martin Zeidler
Identification and analysis of JAK/STAT pathway regulators.
The University’s four flagship institutes bring together our key strengths to tackle global issues, turning interdisciplinary and translational research into real-world solutions.
