Each year, the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation brings together clinical and basic science researchers sharing an interest in mitochondria from all over the world. Participants come from many fields, including biochemistry, genetics, neurosciences, cardiology, cancer, diabetes, nephrology, hematology, pediatrics and aging research. Special Thanks to the Mitochondrial Medicine Society, Mitochondria Research Society, Mitochondrial Physiology Society, and the UMDF Scientific and Medical Advisory Board members for participating in the planning for UMDF annual symposia as well as supporting our mission!
The symposium encourages the exchange of information and cultivates networking among physicians, researchers, patients and families. Meeting format typically consists of a four-day scientific program and a two-day patient/family meeting.
