Druskininkai LT, 2010 Jun 10-16. 4th MiPsummer school on Mitochondrial Respiratory Physiology.
Abstract: 4th MiPsummer school on Mitochondrial Respiratory Physiology, 2010 June 10-16, Druskininkai, Lithuania.
- Vilma Borutaite, PhD
- Institute for Biomedical Research, Kaunas University of Medicine, 3007 Kaunas, Lithuania
- We are happy to announce the final programme for the MiPsummer School 2010 which will be held at the Conference center Spa-Vilnius, Druskininkai, Lithuania. This will be the Fourth MiPsummer School, following the successful MiPsummer Schools 2007, 2008, and 2009.
- The MiPsummer School is open to graduate students, postdocs, scientists from academia and biotechnology/pharmaceutical companies and related entities. The aim of the MiPsummer School is to provide current information and concepts on mitochondrial physiology from basic, biomedical and clinical perspectives. Overview presentations and practical demonstrations on high-resolution respirometry and its applications in mitochondrial physiology will be included. The interests expressed by participants and the MiP lecturers will determine the range of topics but special emphasis this year will be given to mitochondria in brain health and disease.
