The Volume II of Mitochondrial Medicine by Volkmar Weissig and Marvin Edeas is now available

Mitochondrial Medicine II by Volkmar Weissig and Marvin EdeasAfter the publication of the first volume "Mitochondrial Medicine: Volume 1 - Probing Mitochondrial Function", Volkmar Weissig and Marvin Edeas, as chairmen of the World Mitochondria Society, edited an second book: "Mitochondrial Medicine: Volume 2 - Manipulating Mitochondrial Function"

Concerning Mitochondrial Medicine: Volume 2 - Manipulating Mitochondrial Function:

As the first volume, this expert volume covers an interdisciplinary and rapidly growing area of biomedical research comprising genetic, biochemical, pathological, and clinical studies aimed at the diagnosis and therapy of human diseases which are either caused by or associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. It dedicates itself to showcasing the tremendous efforts and the progress that has been made over the last decades in developing techniques and protocols for probing, imaging, and manipulating mitochondrial functions. Mitochondrial Medicine: Volume II, Manipulating Mitochondrial Function describes techniques developed for manipulating and assessing mitochondrial function under general pathological conditions and specific disease states. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Volkmar Weissg and Marvin Edeas highlited the strategic role of mitochondria in health and disease, but they also opened a new window to how to evaluate & to manipulate mitochondrial function.

More than 70 chapters were published by Springer in the two volumes.

Volkmar Weissig and Marvin Edeas updated and renewed an edition for 2017 and discussed the contributors and targets during the 7th World Congress on Targeting Mitochondria that was held in Berlin on October 24-26, 2016.
