Welcome to the homepage of the Microtubule meeting UK

The Microtubule Meetings UK have become a regular event for our community. We are now preparing the sixth Microtubule Meeting UK in Edinburgh, Monday April 27th, 2020.

The idea is to have an annual one-day event to hear about the latest work from labs working in the UK with an interest in microtubules. We also welcome participants sharing our passion for the topic from other countries too. The emphasis will be on early career speakers (PhD, Post-doc and Junior PIs) and on networking between scientists with a common interest. There will be time for poster presentation and this year, due to popular demand, there is an evening dinner at Teviot Hall (and quiz!).

The topic is any cell biological aspect of microtubule function: cell division, transport, motility, structure, modelling. It is your meeting and the direction will be decided by the labs that participate.

The format of the meeting follows other successful one-day meetings supported by the British Society for Cell Biology, e.g. London Membrane Traffic Meeting and Bristol Actin Meeting. These are the go-to events in the UK and they work so well because they are 1) focussed, 2) cheap to attend and 3) take up minimal time.

Registration will be minimal again for this meeting again, including lunch and coffee breaks and dinner. We can keep the costs low thanks to financial support from our generous sponsors. After the 28th February, the price will increase, so sign up before! 

To join the BSCB, please click here. If you can't find your number, email bscb@hg3.co.uk.

Registration is open. Please indicate if you’d like to speak and a rough title. One entry per lab! Priority will be given to labs who did not get the opportunity to talk last time.

The meeting is organised by Julie Welburn (Edinburgh), Andrew Carter (Cambridge) and Steve Royle (Warwick). Please contact us with any questions.

We look forwards to a stimulating meeting where the british community working on microtubules gets together again. We would like to point out our sister BSCB-UK Cilia meeting is also in Edinburgh on the 28th April 2020. If you would like to attend, please follow this link. Lots of opportunities to present and get feedback on your work with these back to back meetings. 

We specially thank generous sponsors who help us set up this meeting.
