Summary of Meeting:
Our understanding of the cilium and ciliary-based signaling continue to rapidly advance, providing novel insights into diseases in which ciliary defects appear to play a dominant role in disease initiation ("ciliopathies"), as well as diseases such as cancer in which ciliary defects appear to play a critical role in disease progression. Increasingly, an understanding of ciliary disease mechanisms is leading to novel therapeutic strategies. This Keystone Symposia meeting brings together leaders in basic mechanisms, translational research, and clinical research, with the objective of bridging the gaps between basic discovery and human disease.
