What's on

Unity and diversity of ciliary systems in locomotion and transport

Scientific meeting


Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, MK16 9JJ


Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Professor Gáspár Jékely, Professor Raymond Goldstein and Dr Kirsty Wan

Chicheley Hall

Cilia are specialized cellular organelles that are united in structure and ubiquitously implicated in key life processes including sensing, locomotion, and the production of physiological flows. This meeting will bring together biologists, biophysicists, and mathematicians to highlight the remarkable diversity of systems in which motile cilia fulfil vital functions, and to inspire and define novel interdisciplinary strategies for future research.

More information on the schedule of the talks will be available soon. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions B.
