Online Symposia Series

In light of the current COVID-19 outbreak, many important cilia and cell biology meetings have been postponed. In response to the overwhelming demand from members of our cilia community, to keep us connected we will be running an entirely virtual online symposia series every fortnight where our PIs, students and postdocs can share their exciting stories that cannot wait. These symposia provide an inclusive mechanism to enjoy great science, deep discussions and to support our peers!

The symposia are free and open to all. However registration for each symposium is required in advance. We will run the symposia series under the ethos of the UK Cilia Network, sharing unpublished data from emerging talent favouring talks from students, post-docs and early career researchers. As such talks will not be recorded nor available on demand. Our goal with these online events is to provide an opportunity to support our young researchers during social distancing, to stimulate the discussion and feedback among our community they need and to foster collaboration and sharing of expertise across all things cilia.

With 100s of attendees from UK and internationally at each symposium, we are thrilled that these symposia continue to grow in popularity. As long as you all keep volunteering to speak, we will keep running the series!

Please submit your talk abstract and title here on registration at the Eventbrite page or via email to Dr Pleasantine Mill who is coordinating the symposia (
