Programs to Connect Patient and Families

UMDF’s four-day Mitochondrial Medicine 2021 was a successful and unique online experience for patients, their families and the mitochondrial medicine community.

Mitochondrial Medicine 2021 covered thought-provoking discussions surrounding clinical trials, as well as current topics facing our patient community in today’s unprecedented landscape. For three consecutive days, attendees were given the opportunity to ask questions and engage in live conversations through online chat and polling.

From couches all over the world, the mitochondrial community came together to share the latest research, collaborative initiatives and new hope for potential treatments and therapies. Thank you to our generous 2021 sponsors, speakers and participants for creating another virtual event that will go down in the history books.
