Dietary Changes & Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (King Library)
Start Date: 4/26/2017Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 4/26/2017End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description:
Dr. French’s research focuses on the toxic effects of alcohol on development in the common fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Her work has shown that alcohol exposure during development changes metabolism and storage of dietary fat, which leads to increased oxidative damage, and that a diet high in fat or sugar increases the toxicity of ethanol. French’s data open up the idea that Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and related disorders might be mitigated through maternal dietary changes.

Dr. French is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences in the College of Science.

Lunch will be provided!

This event is a part of the University Scholar Series. It is co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the University Library, the Spartan Bookstore, Faculty Affairs and Graduate Studies & Research. For additional information about the University Scholar Series, go to
