About us

The Sydney Cytoskeleton Consortium brings together scientists from multiple disciplines whose research focuses on the cytoskeleton. It is a platform for joining forces in unravelling the complexities of the cytoskeleton in biological processes, for sharing expertise, techniques, reagents, mice and for the establishment of inter-departmental collaborations.

The inaugural meeting will be held on 30th May 2016 in the seminar space of Level 6 at the Kirby Institute, Wallace Wurth building, UNSW.
