Mitochondria in Health and Disease will capitalize on growing excitement surrounding the field of mitochondrial function in physiology and medicine. Speakers will explore mitochondrial dynamics, their role in signaling, physiology, mitophagy, and regulated metabolic and bioenergetic functions, across diverse disciplines including neurology, aging, oncology, autophagy, membrane morphogenesis, structural biology, and bioenergetics. As the most important discoveries in mitochondrial dynamics lie ahead, interactions at this meeting will play a key role in advancing the field. Full agenda and speaker information available here.
