This will be a wide-ranging symposium exploring recent developments in mitochondrial biology, developments in understanding fundamental biological processes, and the way that these impact on cell health and function. The scope includes all aspects of mitochondrial biology encompassed by the organising societies: The Physiological Society, the Biochemical Society and The British Pharmacological Society.

Implications for disease and in particular for healthy ageing will be discussed, as will pathways that might be targeted as potential therapeutic strategies. The symposium will include a number of plenary talks by internationally renowned figures in the field. There will be opportunities for younger scientists to present their work and the meeting will also include sessions for late breaking new findings.

The two-day symposium will be followed by a two-day, hands-on, laboratory-based workshop in laboratory techniques for mitochondrial research on 15-16 September 2017. It will be hosted at UCL by the UCL Consortium for Mitochondrial research and directed towards graduate students and post docs emphasising basic principles involved in bench work using state of the art approaches to explore all aspects of mitochondrial cell biology. Limited places available for the workshop.

This meeting is jointly organised by the British Pharmacological Society, the Biochemical Society and the Physiological Society.
