CanFly XIV 2017

The Canadian Drosophila Research Conference is the 2nd largest North American Meeting on Drosophila research, and provides a unique platform for >80 Canadian Drosophila labs to exchange and discuss their latest findings and ideas. A few US labs usually also attend this meeting. This meeting is open to any topics and tries to represent the immense diversity of contemporary Drosophila research. Apart from presentations by group leaders, we strongly encourage postdoctoral researchers and graduate students to give talks at this meeting. In addition to oral presentations, 50-60 research posters will be viewed during three separate sessions. The poster sessions are especially important to encourage face-to-face discussions between group leaders and trainees, thus allowing the next generation of scientists to interact and network.


CanFly XIV will be held at the Banff Centre from June 25-29, 2017 in the beautiful town of Banff, which is located in Banff National Park. The Banff Centre ( is an inspiring and tranquil venue that you don't want to miss, and it is only a 5-7 min walk into the town of Banff.
