Mitochondrial Medicine – Therapeutic Development

18–20 March 2024

Wellcome Genome Campus, UK and Virtual

We are pleased to announce the 8th in our series of meetings on mitochondrial disorders and the search for novel effective therapies.

Mitochondrial disorders have emerged as a major cause of inherited human disease. There is a growing appreciation that new treatments will emerge through collaborations between clinicians, laboratory scientists and the life sciences industry based on a firm understanding of the disease mechanisms. This conference aims to bring these groups together.

The conference will build new partnerships that harness our understanding of the disease mechanisms, accelerating the pace of effective treatments for mitochondrial diseases. This year’s programme will include discussions about recent discoveries on mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) disorders to develop new therapeutic targets and the latest advances in gene editing and genomic technologies. We will also have panel discussions on how we rally the international community for clinical trial consortia and current opportunities and challenges in clinical trials.

The meeting attracts international participants interested in mitochondrial diseases, working in genomics, biochemistry, pathology and clinical medicine. The conference will bring together leaders in translational mitochondrial medicine and basic science with a programme designed to engage and inspire the next generation of mitochondrial researchers.

The programme will also feature short oral presentations selected from abstracts, posters, poster pitches and networking opportunities. Participants choosing accommodation will stay at Hinxton Hall Conference Centre, Wellcome Genome Campus, to enhance opportunities for interaction after the sessions.

This conference is endorsed by European Society for Mitochondrial Research and Medicine and Mitochondrial Medicine Society.
