Mitochondrial Innovations Workshop: Bridging Theory and Practice

Cover-2024-updated 2

The World Mitochondria Society has scheduled an annual workshop on the Evaluation of Mitochondrial Function, led by Dr. Naig Gueguen, for October 28 in Berlin, preceding the Targeting Mitochondria 2024 conference.

Aims & Objectives

  • Focus: Investigation of mitochondrial function, dysfunction, and activities.
  • Purpose: To advance comprehension of mitochondria, metabolism, and bioenergetics.
  • Content: Features technological instruments, biomarkers, and diagnostic methodologies for mitochondrial diseases.
  • Application: Incorporates practical cases for experiential learning and insight.

Intended Audience

  • Medical practitioners, biologists, geneticists, researchers in fields including oncology, neuroscience, pediatrics, metabolic diseases, and others.
  • R&D directors, engineers, research assistants, business executives, and individuals interested in mitochondria, metabolism, bioenergetics, and therapeutic advancements.

Post-Workshop Materials

  • A comprehensive PDF report summarizing workshop proceedings.
  • A bibliography and additional resources for extended learning.
