Ciliopathy Alliance

Ciliopathy Alliance

The Ciliopathy Alliance brings together patient support groups, researchers, doctors and allied health professionals representing patients and families living with and affected by ciliopathies – diseases caused by defects in the function or structure of cilia.


Dysfunctional cilia are known to underlie a number of often chronically disabling and sometimes life-threatening genetic conditions. They affect multiple systems, causing blindness, deafness, chronic respiratory infections, kidney disease, heart disease, infertility, obesity and diabetes.


We want to improve the lives of children and adults affected by ciliopathies – syndromes, diseases or conditions caused by dysfunctional or defective cilia.
