Mitochondria: From Basic Biology to Mechanisms of Disease Conference 2019

Mitochondria act at the interface of numerous processes critical for cellular function and organismal health. 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.

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. Mitochondrial basic mechanisms of organelle regulation, mitochondrial mechanisms of disease, cutting edge technologies, and interventional strategies will be emphasized.

Douglas Wallace, founding director of the Center for Mitochondrial and Epigenomic Medicine at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is the confirmed Keynote speaker for the conference and will be discussing his recent research 'A mitochondrial etiology of the common 'complex' diseases'.
