Research interests

Brain-gut signalling in Drosophila


Research activity


We are investigating the nature and significance of the signals mediating the crosstalk between the nervous and digestive systems, both during development and in the maintenance of homeostasis. By doing so, we hope to understand how our own body integrates nutritional and metabolic information to adjust internal functions and behaviour, as well as what goes wrong in metabolic conditions such as diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome.
