Welcome to Coral Warr Research Group
School of Biological Sciences, Monash University
Coral’s research interests are in cellular and developmental genetics, with a focus on how cells respond to signals from their environment. Her group studies the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, as it is a fantastic model organism for studying how genes function in cells and during development. – Read More about Drosophila here

The Warr Lab is Moving
Coral has recently accepted the position of Head of Biomedical Sciences at University of Tasmania. The Warr Lab will be moving to their new home of Hobart in September 2018.
Fully-funded PhD positions are available for domestic and international students. At present we are particularly keen to recruit students for projects studying cell signalling during neuropeptide regulation of growth in Drosophila. But we can develop projects to suit your interests in any of our main research areas.
To be considered applicants must have a distinction or first-class masters (or honours) by research and English language competence. Applicants must then secure Monash scholarship support, for which there are several options available. Contact us to find out more.
Honours Projects are available in the Warr lab, click here to find out more.
Congratulations to Michelle Henstridge
Michelle has been awarded a NHMRC Early Career Fellowship. She now gets to spend the next four years investigating the control of insulin secretion. Well done Michelle!
Fly bunging Champions
Congratulations to all lab members who contributed to the team award for the fastest fly bunging at the AusFly meeting in Warburton (September 2017), we are now the reigning champions!
Congratulations to Lauren Forbes-Beadle and Katherine Shaw for being awarded their PhD's. Further congratulations to Lauren for her first paper as first author, published in Genetics.
Butchers Burrow Escape
Congratulations to “team Bas” who managed to escape from the “Butchers Burrow” at our lab outing (May 2016).
