Welcome to the homepage of the Microtubule meeting UK, 12th May 2023

The Microtubule Meetings UK have become a regular event for our community. We are preparing the seventh Microtubule Meeting UK in Edinburgh. The 1 day meeting this year will be £20 if you sign up before the 31st March. 

This is the annual one-day event to hear about the latest work from labs working in the UK with an interest in microtubules. We also welcome international 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.

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 for this year, including lunch and coffee breaks. We can keep the costs low thanks to financial support from our generous sponsors. After the 31st March, there will be a cost for registration price, so sign up before! The deadline to be considered for poster or talk is also 31st March.


The meeting is organised by Julie Welburn (Edinburgh), Andrew Carter (Cambridge) and Mark Dodding (Bristol). 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.
