Mitochondrial Medicine: Developing New Treatments for Mitochondrial Disease

A session at Mitochondrial Medicine: Developing New Treatments for Mitochondrial Disease

We are pleased to announce the 2nd in our series of meetings on mitochondrial disorders and the quest for novel effective therapies.

This conference will bring together world leaders in the field of translational mitochondrial medicine in an interactive programme designed to engage and inspire a new generation of mitochondrial researchers, who will harness this new technology to prevent and treat these devastating diseases.

The meeting attracts international participants interested in mitochondrial diseases, working in molecular genetics, biochemistry, pathology, and clinical medicine.
