The Boekhoff-Falk laboratory is focused on brain regeneration in
adult Drosophila brains. We have developed a new model that
utilizes a small injury to stimulate cell proliferation and neural
regeneration, and are investigating the molecular mechanisms
underlying this regeneration. In this position the Scientist will
use Drosophila genetics and transgenesis to generate new strains,
quantitative analysis of neural regeneration potential in wild type
and mutant adult Drosophila brains, lineage tracing of adult-born
neurons and glia, RNA-Seq analysis of regenerating brains, and
molecular and genetic validation of candidate regeneration
