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...

Cilia2021 will be the fifth consecutive biennial European Cilia Conference. We initiated this series in London (Cilia2012), followed by Paris (Cilia2014),...
