The complexity of the metabolic pathways associated with mitochondrial energy homeostasis and the peculiar genetics dictating mitochondrial inheritance in humans, account for the extraordinarily wide spectrum of clinical presentations and genetic abnormalities associated with mitochondrial disorders. This Course on Mitochondrial Medicine intends to offer to European biochemists and biologists, geneticists and physicians the basic and clinically-oriented information on this frontline scientific field, through an articulate program organized in morning plenary lectures and afternoon Meet Researchers presentations. The Course will be open only for 20 participants.
