    Nanocourse of the HMS Department of Cell Biology

    11:30am to 3:30pm

    Location: 

    Harvard Medical School, Cannon Room, Building C, 240 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA

    "Ciliogenesis and Human Disease"

    Cilia  are  present  on  almost  every  cell  type  in  the  human  body.  Many  key processes that occur during development are coordinated by the cilium. These include cell migration, differentiation, and/or re-­‐entry into the cell cycle, specification of the plane of cell division, and apoptosis. Defects in cilia assembly and function lead to a wide range of human diseases, including polycystic  kidney  disease,  hydrocephalus  and  retinal  degeneration, collectively known as ciliopathies. This Nanocourse will highlight the recent advances in understanding the molecular biology of both primary and motile cilia and ciliopathies....
