NVBMB Symposium 2021: 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 winners of the H.G.K. Westenbrink prize, Liqin Wang (NKI) and João Medeiros Silva, will give a lecture.
During lunch, the yearly meeting of NVBMB members will be held.
Registration for the symposium is free but mandatory.
