Description

Mitochondria are dynamic organelles whose origin is intimately connected with the early steps in the evolution of complex life. Mitochondria are involved in numerous metabolic pathways, play fundamental roles in cellular physiology, and their dysfunction is associated with multiple human diseases.
In this second edition of MitoPorto (2018, July 13th) we will place an emphasis on mitochondrial evolution, metabolism and disease. Nevertheless, we welcome abstracts and communications from scientists with a multidisciplinary interest in mitochondrial research (e.g. in the context of neuroscience, cancer, genetics, etc.). The program will combine keynote lectures with oral communications selected from the abstracts. Poster sessions will allow participants to discuss their work with fellow scientists and extend collaborative networks. After a productive scientific meeting in Porto, why not extend your stay in this European Top Destination?
