Welcome to the Portuguese Drosophila meeting 2015 website!

This annual scientific meeting reunites the Portuguese scientific community that uses the Drosophila melanogaster model system. It is a fantastic opportunity to hear state-of-the-art oral and poster communications on a wide variety of fields like Immunology, Neuroscience, Developmental Biology, Oncobiology, Host-pathogen interaction, Population Genetics, and many more.

Scientific findings will be discussed in a friendly and relaxed two-day event where we are sure you’ll have a good time socializing with your scientific colleagues from the north to the south of Portugal, as well as some internationally renowned invited speakers.

Please join us September 4th and 5th at Hotel dos Templários, Tomar!
