Final Report - EUCILIA (Pathophysiology of rare diseases due to ciliary dysfunction: nephronophthisis, Oral-facial-digital type 1 and Bardet-Biedl syndromes)

Project ID: 201804
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH

Abstract

This is the summary report of the EUCILIA project, funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). EUCILIA aims to unravel the role of cilia in basic cellular mechanisms, in order to gain insight into the pathogenetic mechanism of ciliary dysfunction, by using animal models and cell culture systems. The project targets at a better understanding of ciliary function and structure which is likely to have an enormous impact both at the basic research level and at clinical consequences of lack or dysfunction of cilia. The document describes the project context and gives in detail the objectives. It discusses the outcomes achieved presenting the results with illustrative information. At the end of the summary the potential impact is argued and the dissemination activities are presented. A list of publications is given as well as reports on the societal impact.
