We are pleased to announce the virtual Dynein 2021 International Workshop which will be held online on 8th/9th September 2021. This free, live meeting will bring together scientists with an interest in dynein motors to share novel research results and establish and develop new collaborations. Our goal is to provide a venue to encourage discussions across all areas of dynein biology and extend opportunities for junior researchers to participate in the field despite the difficulties imposed by the...

***POSTPONED TO SEPT 2021*** In light of the ongoing COVID19 restrictions, we will postpone this meeting to September to try to keep an in-person/hybrid BSCB GenSoc UK Fall Cilia Meeting in Edinburgh. The plan is to try to run it the day after the British Microtubule Meeting also in Edinburgh. Watch this space as details evolve!

Moltkes Palace, Copenhagen, Denmark
Centrosomes and spindle pole bodies are major microtubule organizing centres (MTOCs) of animal and yeast cells, respectively. A specialized centrosome structure also serves as template for cilia and flagella formation. These MTOCs play critical roles in cell division, cell polarity, signalling, immunity, cell motility and animal development. Centrosome abnormalities have been implicated in multiple human diseases including cancer and cilia-related syndromes. The link between aberrant centrosome...

Maternushaus Conference Centre, Cologne, DE
The new date will be October 04 - 07, 2022, at the Maternushaus right in the center of Cologne. Cilia2022 will be the fifth consecutive biennial European Cilia Conference. We initiated this series in London (Cilia2012), followed by Paris (Cilia2014), Amsterdam (Cilia2016, EMBO-funded), and Copenhagen (Cilia2018, EMBO-funded). Two decades of groundbreaking discoveries in cilia biology has revolutionized our understanding of the critical role of cilia in signaling, development, tissue...
