Radboud Frontiers in Cilia Medicine 2015

Cilia [1]

The RIMLS is organizing its ninth annual symposium, entitled, Radboud Frontiers in Cilia Medicine.

Primary cilia are highly conserved sensory organelles that extend from the surface of almost all vertebrate cells. Primary cilia have critical roles in sensing the extracellular environment, and in numerous developmental signalling pathways. Disruption of these functions underlies a diverse spectrum of (genetic) disorders, known as primary ciliopathies. Known ciliopathies include primary ciliary dyskinesia, Bardet-Biedl syndrome, polycystic kidney and liver disease, nephronophthisis, and some forms of retinal degeneration. True to our Frontiers symposia, a top line-up of speakers who will provide high-quality presentations on current achievements and challenges ahead.

Date: November 30th and December 1st 2015

Keynote lectures: Katryn Anderson (New York) & Joe Gleeson (New York)

Symposium organisors:
René Bindels, Joost Hoenderop, Anneke den Hollander, Ronald Roepman & Adrian Cohen.
