Project summary

Andrew began his Fellowship in August 2009 and is studying the neural circuitry of the olfactory system of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster with Professor Gero Miesenböck at the University of Oxford. He is taking advantage of the relative simplicity and genetic accessibility of the fruit-fly nervous system to dissect circuit mechanisms underlying odour discrimination and olfactory memory.
