Our understanding of the cell biology of mitochondria has exploded in the last decade, providing a renewed understanding of their contribution to neurological diseases ranging from pediatric encephalomyopathies to Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, and others.
Select faculty from the 2016 Neurobiology of Disease Workshop will continue the discussion, emphasizing mitochondrial motility and neurodegeneration, mitochondrial function in Alzheimer ’s disease, and the role of mitochondria in immunity and links to neuroinflammation. After the scientific presentations, join all the speakers here in the Neuronline Community for a live chat. Post your questions for the speakers in the replies below. *
##In the live chat:
- Heidi McBride, PhD, professor and Canada Research Chair in Mitochondrial Cell Biology at McGill University
- Eric Schon, PhD, Lewis P. Rowland Professor of Neurology in genetics and development at Columbia University Medical Center
