Nordic Cilia and Centrosome Network

Dear Network members,

Welcome to Norway for the next Nordic Cilia and Centrosome Network meeting!

The meeting will take place on the island of Hankø from April 23rd to 25th.

We will gather at Hankø Fjordhotell & Spa to discuss our science in a warm social atmosphere on an island at the entry of the Oslo fjord.

We are very pleased to announce that two plenary speakers will join us. Prof Stephen J Doxsey (University of Massachusetts Medical School) and Prof Philip L Beales (University College London) kindly accepted our invitation. Their presentations and expertise in clinical and basal aspects of centrosome and cilia biology will truly greatly contribute to the success of the meeting!

Estimating the attendance of about 45 network members the network grant will cover the expenses for your stay on Hankø, including transportation from/to Oslo airport Gardermoen (OSL). Other travel expenses have to be covered individually.
Please be advised that only a limited number of single rooms is available. If you would like to share a room, please indicate your preferred room mate in the registration form.

The deadline for registration is March 5th.

We’re looking forward to receiving the abstracts of your presentations. Though a poster prize will be available, please be encouraged to contribute with an oral presentation. We will schedule the program accordingly to give enough time for stimulating discussions.

See you in Norway this spring!

Harald Stenmark & Sebastian Patzke
