Cilia 2016

4 – 7 October 2016  Amsterdam, The Netherlands


Since 2000, major discoveries in cilia biology have been achieved in a diversity of disciplines, including cellular and molecular biology, genetics, medicine and biophysics. This young field is evolving quickly and major breakthroughs occur on a regular basis.

The EMBO Conference, Cilia 2016, will highlight both scientific and clinical progress, and uniquely integrate patient perspective. By bringing scientists from different disciplines together, we aim to promote multidisciplinary cross-fertilisation and collaboration. This EMBO Conference will bring ciliopathy patients, clinicians, and researchers together, to create awareness and help determining the translational research focus.
