About the meeting

September, 13th and 14th Hotel Villa Batalha – Batalha Between 14:00 and 19:30

Welcome to the Portuguese Drosophila meeting 2019 website!

This annual scientific meeting reunites the Portuguese scientific community that uses the Drosophila melanogaster model system, as well as some internationally renowned invited speakers. 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. Naturally, we also welcome Drosophila researchers from outside of Portugal to participate in this meeting.

Please join us September 13th and 14th at Hotel Villa Batalha, Batalha!
