Midwest Drosophila Conference: Nov. 12-13, 2016

This conference is a wonderful small meeting in a self-contained and historical setting. The format and location enable significant interactions among PIs, students and postdocs, and provide a great opportunity for junior students and postdocs to give talks alongside more senior researchers. In addition to being affordable and centrally located, Allerton Park is beautiful in the fall, and its 1500 acres contain formal sculpture gardens and 14 miles of walking trails.

Registration has concluded – the event has already occurred.
