The field of mitochondrial dynamics has had a profound impact throughout the areas of biomedical research. To keep up with the rapid pace of discovery, we have organized a meeting that brings together the top scientists from around the world working on both the fundamental aspects of mitochondrial dynamics, and the function of mitochondrial plasticity in multiple disease processes. Set in an intimate environment in beautiful Sardinia, Italy, there will be plenty of opportunity for trainees to engage their peers during poster sessions and social events. So join us for an exciting and intense gathering of cutting-edge research into mitochondrial dynamics as we move from mechanism to disease.
