On behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff of the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF), we are pleased to offer these words of congratulations and support.
At UMDF, our mission is our driving force:
To promote research and education for the diagnosis, treatment, and cure of mitochondrial disorders and to provide support for affected individuals and families.
It is for this reason that we are proud to provide support for this important scientific meeting which has been organized by the Mitochondrial Physiology Society under the Chairmanship of Prof. Erich Gnaiger. We understand that good science knows no borders and we are committed to a world united in the struggle to unravel the medical mystery of mitochondrial disorders.
Thank you for your talent, energy, and fervent desire to help find a cure. We truly believe that we are on the verge of medical breakthroughs that will change our understanding of disease in the 21st century. This is a task of no small proportion; and we must all pull together if we are to make a difference.
Again, please accept our profound thanks for your good work. Enjoy the conference, this wonderful setting, and please remember the thousands upon thousands of children and adults who are counting on us for a better future or, sadly, any future at all.
Yours toward a cure, With all best wishes,
Charles A. Mohan
