So much of what we know about human embryonic development and ageing comes not from studies on humans, but from research on humble laboratory organisms like the common fruit fly. Learn about the rich history of this tiny biological VIP and what researchers and clinicians are doing today to understand how we got here and where we are going.

Ginger Hunter is an Assistant Professor of Biology at Clarkson University. She earned her Ph.D. at Duke University in developmental biology, where she studied cell and tissue migration in the fruit fly embryo. Ginger teaches genetics, cell biology, and medical microbiology, and does research on the development of biological patterns.
