Event Overview
Welcome message:

Mitochondria act at the interface of numerous processes critical for cellular function and organismal health.  Long recognized as the powerhouses of the cell, recent years have seen a growing appreciation for the diverse roles that mitochondria play not only in energy production and metabolism, but also in maintenance of redox balance, regulation of gene expression, ion homeostasis, and control of cell fate.  Mitochondrial maintenance is critical for proper function of cells and tissues, and mitochondrial dysfunction underlies numerous disease processes ranging from severe childhood mitochondrial disorders, to heart disease, neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, and aging itself.  This conference will bring together scientists and clinicians with expertise in a breadth of mitochondrial biology to explore topics at the interface of basic and translational biology.  Mitochondrial basic mechanisms of organelle regulation, mitochondrial mechanisms of disease, cutting edge technologies, and interventional strategies will be emphasized.


Learning Objectives

Basic mechanisms and regulation of mitochondrial biology

Discuss crosstalk and integration of mitochondrial pathways with other cellular compartments and cell signalling.

Learn about how these pathways of mitochondrial dysfunction contribute to diseases

Discuss therapies targeting mitochondria in human diseases

Discuss future directions for mitochondrial research  


Basic scientists studying mechanisms of mitochondrial and cell biology

Clinicians and translational biologists interested in mitochondrial disease

Neuroscientists studying mitochondrial function and role of mitochondria in neurodegenerative disease

Scientists studying processes where mitochondria are important (metabolism, aging, cancer, heart function, etc.)

Educational Need

Mitochondria sit at the intersection of many important areas of biology and biomedicine, but there are limited opportunities for people studying different areas of biology where mitochondria are important (aging, neurodegenerative disease, inherited disorders, mitochondria disease, heart disease, myopathies and muscular dystrophies, evolutionary biology, obesity, diabetes, kidney disease, etc.) to come together at one meeting.  The primary outcome we hope to stimulate is interaction and cross fertilization of ideas between these diverse scientists leading to new collaborations and synergistic advances.
