Presented By

Presented by the New York Academy of Sciences, Weill Medical College and Graduate School of Medical Sciences at Cornell University, The Ellison Medical Foundation, and The Burke Medical Research Institute

 

This event is an official satellite meeting of the International Society for Neurochemistry.

This conference is being held in honor of
John P. Blass, MD, PhD
Professor Emeritus, Department of Neurology and Neuroscience
Weill Medical College of Cornell University
Burke Medical Research Institute

Our understanding of the interaction of mitochondria with other cellular organelles, with transcription, and in the ability to detect oxidative modification of macromolecules has improved significantly in the past decade. Moreover, the roles of mitochondria and oxidative stress are better defined in the pathophysiology of neurodegenerative disorders. The goal of this meeting is to determine what we need to know to move towards better therapies. The conference will combine basic, clinical and translational research in a forum designed to provide the most current information on aspects of mitochondrial function and its relationship to age-related neurodegenerative diseases and their treatment.
