Mitochondria Iron Metabolism: Its Role in Pathogenesis of Diseases

Sonia Levi 1It is a great pleasure to welcome Dr. Sonia Levi, Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, Italy, at Targeting Mitochondria 2024 this October in Berlin. 

Presentation title: Mitochondria Iron Metabolism: Its Role in Pathogenesis of Diseases

In her talk Dr. Levi will cover the following:

  • Discuss the importance of iron in the physiology of mitochondria.
  • Mitochondria as the critical controllers of cellular iron homeostasis and their involvement in the mechanism of ferroptosis, an iron-dependent form of cellular death driven by lipid peroxidation.
  • Example of how mitochondrial iron-deficiency and -overload impair mitochondrial metabolism, promoting disease development.
  • Focus on mitochondrial iron-imbalance role in the initiation and progression of neurodegenerative diseases.
