overviewThe Laboratory is presently involved in several research projects:

  • Role of miRNA-mediated regulation on circadian rhythms in Drosophila.
  • Finding new components of the circadian molecular machinery.
  • Study of the circadian neural network in Drosophila.
  • A new approach to study neurodegeneration in Drosophila.

The Laboratory is interested in understanding how molecular processes in the brain determine behavior. For doing so, we study the circadian clock of Drosophila at the molecular, behavioral and neural level.
