Organized by : Fusion Conferences Ltd
Conference Brochure

Mitochondria: From Basic Biology to Mechanisms of Disease Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held from Feb 27 - Mar 02, 2019 at Melia Nassau Beach All Inclusive, Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas.

Target Audience :
• Basic scientists studying mechanisms of mitochondrial and cell biology.
• Clinicians and translational biologists interested in mitochondrial disease.
• Neuroscientists studying mitochondrial function and role of mitochondria in neurodegenerative disease.
• Scientists studying processes where mitochondria are important (metabolism, aging, cancer, heart function, etc.)

Conference Description :
Mitochondria act at the interface of numerous processes critical for cellular function and organismal health. Long recognized as the powerhouses of the cell, recent years have seen a growing appreciation for the diverse roles that mitochondria play not only in energy production and metabolism, but also in maintenance of redox balance, regulation of gene expression, ion homeostasis, and control of cell fate. Mitochondrial maintenance is critical for proper function of cells and tissues, and mitochondrial dysfunction underlies numerous disease processes ranging from severe childhood mitochondrial disorders, to heart disease, neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, and aging itself. This conference will bring together scientists and clinicians with expertise in a breadth of mitochondrial biology to explore topics at the interface of basic and translational biology. Mitochondrial basic mechanisms of organelle regulation, mitochondrial mechanisms of disease, cutting edge technologies, and interventional strategies will be emphasized.

Conference Objectives are :
• Basic mechanisms and regulation of mitochondrial biology.
• Discuss crosstalk and integration of mitochondrial pathways with other cellular compartments and cell signalling.
• Learn about how these pathways of mitochondrial dysfunction contribute to diseases.
• Discuss therapies targeting mitochondria in human diseases.
• Discuss future directions for mitochondrial research.
