This is the fourteenth annual conference organized by UMDF, bringing together clinical and basic science researchers sharing an interest in mitochondria. Participants come from many fields, including biochemistry, genetics, neurosciences, cardiology, cancer, diabetes, nephrology, hematology, pediatrics and aging research. At any major scientific meeting, a handful of presentations on mitochondrial disease will be found, but in order to stimulate research interactions in this ever-expanding cross-disciplinary field, the UMDF symposium focuses entirely on mitochondrial medicine.
The UMDF mission is to promote research and education for the diagnosis, treatment and cure of mitochondrial disorders and to provide support to affected individuals and families.
Join us in Bethesda, MD, as we continue to set the pace in mitochondrial medicine, encouraging the exchange of information and cultivating networks among physicians, researchers, patients and families!
