The Vinegar Fly: In Search of Cures for Diseases

Finding a cure for diseases as terrible as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s is one of the challenges of modern medicine. It is a complex process in which help sometimes comes from the most unexpected sources. That’s the case with Drosophila melanogaster, also known as the fruit fly or vinegar fly. How is it possible that such a small insect, so different from humans, can be useful in curing diseases? To learn more about this tiny friend of science, come to our activity. You will discover mutant flies, flies we use to cure diseases, and you’ll help us test some drugs on our flies, among many other things. We look forward to seeing you!
