Event description
The NHLBI is hosting the 5th Mitochondrial Biology Symposium on "Mitochondrial Networks and Energetics"

About this Event

Pre-registration is now closed. On-site registration will be available starting September 26 in the lower level of the William H. Natcher Conference Center.

This two-day symposium will bring together experts from around the world to review advances in our understanding of how mitochondrial structure, function, and interactions within the cell contribute to diseases and aging and to highlight recent progress made with animal models and therapeutic interventions. While mitochondria have long been known for their energy-providing roles, researchers are uncovering more and more cellular processes in which these organelles are crucial. We have come to recognize just how deeply mitochondria can impact human health, but our understanding still has a long way to go. It is essential that we continue to advance our knowledge of mitochondria as part of the integrated cell as well as in animal and disease models. A better conception of the underlying regulatory mechanisms is critical to developing truly effective therapies.

The Keynote Speaker is Vamsi K. Mootha, M.D. Dr. Mootha is a Professor of Systems Biology and Medicine at Harvard Medical School, an Investigator in the Department of Molecular Biology at Massachusetts General Hospital, and a member of the Broad Institute.

We are still accepting Late-Breaking poster abstracts through August 31st, 2019, 11:59PM EST. Authors of accepted submissions will get to present their posters at one of two poster sessions during the event. Abstracts that were submitted to the Call for Abstracts will be reviewed and four will be selected for short oral presentations. Ownership of abstracts and posters remains with the author(s). Simultaneous submission of abstracts and posters to NIH and to other organizations/meetings is permitted. For more information, please visit 2019mbs.com/call-for-abstracts.
