UMDF Mitochondrial Medicine Symposium 2023

28th June - 1st July 2023

The Sheraton/le Meridien Hotel, Charlottesville, North Carolina

The UMDF Symposium provides an international stage for leaders in the field of mitochondria and offers programmes to inspire the next generation of researchers. Sessions are focused on the latest developments in the field of mitochondrial medicine, including industry advancements, potential treatments, therapies and cutting edge research. The event also gives the scientific communities the unique experience of engaging with affected patients to better understand symptoms and work faster towards a cure.

Programme highlights include;

  • The deep connections between inflammation and mechanisms of disease induced by mitochondrial stress.
  • The interplay between mitochondrial metabolism and the immune system and the modulation of that interaction by viral infections.
  • The development of novel biomarkers for mitochondrial disease that can potentially be used to validate diagnostic evaluation and outcome of therapeutic trials.

There is also a programme of sessions designed for patients and families.
