Mitochondria are dynamic organelles important in mediating cell and tissue homeostasis. In this track, we will hear exciting new updates on the role of mitochondria beyond energy production in metabolism, ion homeostasis, and determination of the fate of cells and tissues by metabolites and their transporters.

Keywords: NAD, metabolite and ion transporters, sirtuins, mitochondria, metabolism.

Who should attend: students, postdocs and anyone interested in mitochondria, metabolism, and health.

Theme song: “Thunder” by Imagine Dragons

This track is powered by mitochondria.
