Cilium Interest Group

The Cilium Interest Group (CIG) hopes to bring together local researchers interested in cilium/flagellum biology and ciliopathies. Below is our schedule. Please contact me if you’d like to sign up to speak at an upcoming CIG meeting and contact Ann Franken if you’d like to be added to the mailing list.
