The Mitochondrial Conundrum: Novel Presentations and Treatments of Mitochondrial Diseases
The study of mitochondrial diseases is a relatively new field of medicine. The diversity of syndromes caused, wholly or in part, by mitochondrial defects is astounding. Historically, mitochondrial diseases have been thought to be largely untreatable. However, recent new therapies offer hope to a wide group of patients.
The Second Biennial Mitochondrial Biology Conference will bring together renowned leaders in the field of mitochondrial disease research and patient care. Discussion will focus on the newly recognized atypical presentations of mitochondrial diseases, with an emphasis on new therapies that are giving new cause for hope.
Join us and add your voice as we discuss the wide variation in presentation of mitochondrial diseases and novel therapies being tested. Families and patients are welcome.
Presented by Seattle Children's Research Institute in collaboration with the Mitochondrial Research Guild.
