Clare E. Hancock
PhD Student

Clare Hancock is a PhD student in the Department of Molecular Neurobiology of Behavior at the University of Göttingen, Germany. She received her undergraduate and master's degrees at the University of Sussex, UK.

Through her work so far in the field of Drosophila neurobiology and behavior, Clare has developed a keen interest in the neural processes underlying fruit flies' ability to integrate past and present experiences to influence the selection of appropriate behavioral outputs. As such, her PhD work focuses on the investigation of mechanisms of synaptic plasticity in the Drosophila mushroom body, using functional imaging as the primary tool.
