Welcome Alumni

In 1987, the first Drosophila Neurobiology course at CSHL debuted with Lily Jan, Michael Bate, and Yuh Nung Jan at the helm. Thirty-one years later, the short course continues to be offered every summer and has trained over 400 scientists (and counting). This page is dedicated to connecting - and re-connecting - fly course alumni and keeping everyone up-to-date on everyone's recent accomplishments. 

See who else has joined the fly course alumni ranks (aka Honor Roll); and be sure to join the alumni network and check out the course on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
