The primary cilium was originally considered to be a vestigial organelle, but it has since been discovered that cilia are essential to transduce key signaling pathways. With this there has been a surge of research into this area with new groups springing up across the UK. The UK Cilia Network was established in 2016 to bring together those studying all aspects of cilia biology.
The next UK Cilia Network Meeting to be held in Oxford on the 23rd March 2018 with Phillippe Bastin (Institute Pasteur, Paris) presenting the keynote talk. This meeting is possible thanks to the generous support of the Genetics Society, Bruker Microscopy, The J.W. Jenkinson Memorial Trust, and Proteintech.
