2019 Welcome

pb8u87801On behalf of the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF), the Mitochondria Research Society, the Mitochondrial Medicine Society, and the Mitochondrial Physiology Society, and Children’s Hospital Medical Center of Akron (CHMCA), we would like to invite you to attend Mitochondrial Medicine 2019, the UMDF’s international symposium dedicated to mitochondrial medicine, to be held June 26 – 29, 2019, at the Alexandria Hilton Mark Center, Alexandria, Virginia, USA.  This year’s theme will be Mitochondria from the Bench to the Bedside.

The symposium planning committee has brought together another spectacular faculty for this year’s symposium. Based on our past annual symposia, we expect several hundred researchers and clinicians to attend this meeting.

This is the 21st 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 Alexandria, Virginia, as we continue to set the pace in mitochondrial medicine, encouraging the exchange of information and cultivating networks among physicians, researchers, patients and families!

Sincerely,

Amel Karaa, MD
Co-Chair
Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA

Carla Koehler, PhD
Co-Chair
University of California Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA

Bruce H. Cohen, Akron Children’s Hospital, Akron, OH
