About the Authors

Drosophila Models of Human Disease was founded in 2012 by Stephanie Mohr, PhD, who has more than fifteen years of experience in Drosophila genetics and related research. She is the Director of the Drosophila RNAi Screening Center in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School. Grant support for the DRSC and related activities includes NIH NIGMS R01 GM067761 (N. Perrimon PI and S.M. Co-PI) and NIH NCRR/ORIP R24 RR032668 (N. Perrimon PI).

You can contribute. Experts interested to become one-time or frequently contributing authors of the blog should contact Stephanie Mohr. Stephanie's contact information is available online from the DRSC, Harvard Medical School or FlyBase People. Special interested in the following:
  • Openly available resources (e.g. fly stocks) relevant to the use of Drosophila as a model for disease
  • Freely available bioinformatics tools or databases relevant to the use of Drosophila as a model for disease
  • Curated lists of key papers related to the use of Drosophila as a model for a given disease or set of diseases
  • Comparisons of cellular mechanisms of a given disease-related pathway in human versus Drosophila systems, as a figure, table or text
  • Lists of key unanswered questions relevant to a particular disease or disease model that might be addressed in Drosophila
