Abstract

Next year will be the 50th anniversary of the discovery of tubulin. To celebrate this discovery, six leaders in the field of microtubule research reflect on key findings and technological breakthroughs over the past five decades, discuss implications for therapeutic applications and provide their thoughts on what questions need to be addressed in the near future.
