Research Projects

The various groups within the UK Cilia Network are engaged in numerous research projects investigating primary and motile cilia, and related structures and their role in development, ageing, health and disease. Many of these projects are collaborations between members of the network and funded through a variety of sources.

The following are current cilia-related projects funded by the Research Councils UK amounting to approximately £16M of live grants:
