Day 1 | Day 2Brochure  

Mitochondrial failure and/or dysfunction has been identified as an important factor in diseases ranging from neurodegenerative conditions (ALS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Disease), epilepsy and autism, to diseases of the cardiovascular system, liver, and kidney, as well as cancer and diabetes. The broad impact of mitochondria in so many diseases makes them prime targets for therapeutics.

Since medications for many diseases cause unwanted toxicity to the mitochondria, it is extremely critical for drug discovery and development researchers to be able to predict and prevent this serious side effect for their compounds. This conference will present the latest research in new targeting pathways, novel therapeutics, and new breakthroughs in the understanding of mitochondrial function, as well as methods to decrease or eliminate mitochondrial toxicity when developing therapeutics.
