Conference abstract

The Mitochondrial Summer School 2010 is a combination of a conference and a PhD course. The targeted group is young scientists with research interests within fields related to mitochondria. If your interests include aging, metabolic diseases or neurologic disorders or any other mitochondria-related subjects we are interested in your contribution and you will benefit from the Summer School. The school will comprise lectures from international renowned scientists and presentations of current front line research. Furthermore, participating PhD students are expected to deliver a presentation of their own work in the form of posters or - for a selected number of participants - short talks. Abstracts are required at registration. A preliminary program will soon appear on the home page, which will regularly be updated.


The exact programme is yet to be established, but below are listed some of the prominent confirmed speakers, who will give talks on this year's Mitochondrial Summer School. More speakers will of course be added to the list when confirmed. To view the updated list, please go to www.mito.ruc.dk.
