The annual Spring Symposium of the NVBMB will take place on Friday May 8th, 2020 in Nijmegen. The title of the Symposium is ‘Mitochondrial physiology and pathology’. In total, nine invited speakers will present their work. The lectures will discuss subjects ranging from the molecular to the clinical level. Examples include the biogenesis of the protein supercomplexes involved in oxidative phosphorylation, the assessment of mitochondrial bioenergetics at the single-cell level, the use of cellular and mouse models to investigate mitochondrial (dys)function in the context of aging and various pathologies, the clinical aspects of mitochondrial DNA mutations and the use of stem cell-based therapies to combat mitochondrial disease.
In addition, the winner of the H.G.K. Westenbrink prize, Liqin Wang (NKI), will give a lecture entitled: “A one-two punch model for cancer therapy”.
During lunch, the yearly meeting of NVBMB members will be held.
