Fruit Flies: Lessons in Research and Politics
In this lecture Professor Drew wants to illustrate that we can and should combine both, basic and applied research, to the benefit of all. Also, he will suggest that our research must have a strong element of creativity that stretches our understanding and engenders a more lateral and contextual exploration of our subjects. In his fruit fly research, Professor Drew has held the view that basic research into systematics, ecology and behaviour of species, with its synthesis and analysis, provides the all important foundation for major contributions to world food production, while preserving our environment.
