Multifaceted cilia and flagella
A large number of French laboratories are interested in cilia and flagella and decided to get together in a GDR ("Groupe De Recherche" supported by the CNRS). The member teams are studying these fascinating organelles through different model systems and with different point of view. With this GDR our goal is to encourage knowledge transmission by facilitating the scientific exchanges and catalysing new collaborations. Creating a GDR was a natural follow-up to the regular meetings organized each year: the "French Meeting on Cilia, Flagelle and Centrioles" or CFC. This website should provide an updated information on what's going on in the french cilia fields.
During the 8th french meeting on Cilia, Flagella and Centrioles that was held in Carry-le-Rouet 7-9th October 2013, the GDR attributed four prizes for outstanding presentations:
Best Student Oral Presentation: Keni Vidilaseris (Max Perutz Laboratory, Vienna, Austria)
Best Student Poster Presentation: Julie Jerber (CNRS & Université de Lyon)
Best Post-Doc Oral Presentation: Jérome Ezan (INSERM & Université de Bordeaux)
Best Post-Doc Poster Presentation: Montserrat Bosch-Grau (CNRS & Institut Curie)
The award is a 500€ amount to participate to a cilia-related scientific conference in 2014.
Congratulations to the winners and to all the other participants for making a dynamic and excellent meeting !
GDR3581 CIL will provide a substantial part of it funding to help young researcher to travel and participate to international scientific meetings. 5000€ will be dedicated each year to this purpose, with a maximum of 1000€ per person.
