Welcome to the homepage of the British Microtubule meeting

The British Microtubule Meetings have become a regular event for our community. We are now preparing the fourth British Microtubule Meeting in Edinburgh, Monday April 30th, 2018.

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. 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 will be an evening social, more details to come.

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 £20 per person for this meeting again, including lunch and coffee breaks. We can keep the costs low thanks to financial support from our generous sponsors.

Registration will open in late 2017-early 2018. 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), Bungo Akiyoshi (Oxford), 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 specially thank generous sponsors who help us set up this meeting.
