Now's the time for Fly

Fly is the first international peer-reviewed journal to focus on Drosophila research. Having expanded the editorial board to include even more experts in the field of Drosophila from all over the world, Fly is quickly becoming the 'go to' journal for Drosophila research.

Mariana Wolfner

Mariana Federica Wolfner is Distinguished Professor of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. 

Her research interests centre around sex-specific differences and their reproductive consequences, investigating these by a combination of approaches including genetics, molecular biology, and imaging. In one project area, she and her lab dissect the functions and evolution of seminal proteins, mostly in Drosophila but also in disease-vector mosquitoes. In a second area, they identify the conserved triggers and molecular changes that activate eggs to develop, once fertilized. 

Mariana is a crossword-puzzle fiend, loves outrageous puns and unusual museums, and finds restoration by being outdoors in nature.

Peter Dearden

Peter Dearden is at the University of Otago, New Zealand. He completed his PhD in London, UK, was a postdoc with Michael Akam in Cambridge and then began his own lab in New Zealand in 2002.

He is interested in Evolution and Development, how gene regulatory networks evolve, the molecular mechanisms of plasticity and the evolution of eusociality.

He has been viciously bitten by Zephr, one of only 204 Kākāpō (the world’s rarest parrot) left in the world.
