Title: Growth coordination during development

The primary goal of the group's projects is to use Drosophila Genetics to decipher the Physiology of the coupling between Development, Environment and the Growth program that together determine the final size of an organism. Their specific aims are the following

- aim 1: understanding how insulin signaling is modulated by the nutrition sensor, and in particular identifying the humoral connection between the tissues involved in sensing the nutrients and those producing insulin-like peptides. 

- aim 2: understanding the molecular basis for tissue growth arrest and the coordination between tissue growth and the developmental timing.

All are welcome. Registration is not needed.
