Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are delighted to invite you to attend the The First Conference of the African Society of Drosophilists,  which will hold September 17 – 19, 2019, at the Conference centre, University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria.

The conference is jointly organised by the Society of Drosophilists, Nigeria and  DrosAfrica and sponsored by  ICGEB and Company of Biologists. The meeting will serve as a gathering of researchers with common interest in the promotion of Drosophila melanogaster as a  veritable model in Biomedical Research. It hopes to attract interested scientists from all over the continent of Africa.

We are also pleased to announce that a pre-conference workshop on Drosophila model for Biomedical Research will take place two days before the conference proper. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Ibadan in September 2019 and providing you with a memorable scientific and cultural experience!

Warm regards, 

Samuel B Olaleye

LOC Chairman
