Subgroup D

Subgroup D: Cilia: Traffic, Signals, Disease

8:30 am – 12:30 pm, Room 120B
Organizers: Max Nachury, University of California, San Francisco; Peter Jackson, Stanford; and Jeremy Reiter, University of California, San Francisco

This special interest subgroup on cilia serves as a point of convergence for human geneticists working on kidney and eye diseases, for developmental biologists aiming to understand the Hedgehog pathway and left-right axis patterning, and for cell biologists interested in compartmentalized signal transduction. Researchers from the diverse fields that intersect with ciliary biology will discuss the interplay between membrane trafficking, signaling and disease.
