Mitochondria in Complex Diseases

Mitochondria in Complex Diseases

Tuesday, April 21, 2020, 8:30 AM - 6:00 PM

The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St Fl 40, New York

Presented By

The New York Academy of Sciences

 

Mitochondria in Complex Diseases will explore the impact of these cellular powerhouses in physiology and medicine. Beyond their well-known function as the regulator of cellular energy metabolism, mitochondria also function in cellular signaling, differentiation, cell death, regulating the cell cycle and cell growth, reactive oxygen species generation, and regulation of the epigenome. Speakers at this symposium will explore new advances in the basic biology of mitochondria, and highlight the role of mitochondrial damage and dysfunction in cardiovascular disease, immunology, regenerative medicine, neurodegenerative disease, and aging.
