The 5th World Congress on Targeting Mitochondria was held on October 29 to 31, 2014, at Hotel Ritz Carlton, Berlin. It was a huge success gathering more than 460 attendees from 36 countries were welcomed. The participants were coming from various fields: academics, industrials, clinicians,...


Targeting Mitochondria Congress was openedwith a Workshop held on October 29 which gathered KLO in Mitochondria Evaluation in vitro and in vivo.

During three days, more than 50 speakers gave major and short oral presentations. And more than 90 posters were presented.

Chairmen of the Scientific Committee


The Chairmen  of the Scientific Committee of Targeting Mitochondria 2014 are happy to announce the final agenda of Targeting Mitochondria Pr Marvin Edeas - Pr  Volkmar Weisig are  accounce the final agenda of Targeting Mitochondria World Congress which will be held at Ritz-Carlton Hotel on October 29-30-31, 2014.


agrawalThe scientific committee invited  Dr. Anurag Agrawa to present his excellent work.

He identified a protein that increases the transfer of mitochondria from mesenchymal stem cells to lung cells. In work published in The EMBO Journal, the researchers reveal that the delivery of mitochondria to human lung cells can rejuvenate damaged cells.

The migration of mitochondria from stem cells to epithelial cells also helps to repair tissue damage and inflammation linked to asthma-like symptoms in mice.



The scientific committee invited  Dr. Hans Zischka to present his excellent work.

Mitochondrial research indispensably relies on investigations of isolated biochemically intact organelles. However, standard methods lack precisely adjustable and reproducible settings for cell disruption, the initial and most important step in the isolation procedure of mitochondria.


Chrysi Koliaki

Dr. Chrysi Koliaki will  present her last studies published in Molecular Metabolism.

In the last issue of Molecular Metabolism, Dr. Chrysi Koliaki addressed the intensively debated term “mitochondrial dysfunction” in the context of insulin resistance using a comprehensive cell-autonomous approach, which allowed constant substrate delivery to distinct insulin-sensitive cell types circumventing confounding effects of in vivo inter-tissue crosstalk.


MtchWSThe Scientific Committee of Targeting Mitochondria reminds you that a pre-conference workshop is organized on October.29 to highlight all methods & strategies which allow investigating and studying mitochondria in physiologic and pathologic conditions in all its dimensions.
