Mitochondria: a switchboard between various cell death modalities

Vladimir GogvadzeDr. Vladimir Gogvadze talk will be focused on the role of mitochondria as a switchboard between various cell death modalities, namely, necrosis, apoptosis, necroptosis and autophagy.

Investigation of different forms of cell death has become an important area of biomedical research. Recently, several cell death modalities, in addition to necrosis and apoptosis, have been described and characterized based on morphological and biochemical criteria. The interaction between the different forms of cell death is complex and is still a matter of debate. Recently, the mitochondria have been demonstrated to play a crucial role in the effectuation of several cell death modalities, although the precise mechanisms of their involvement are still unclear.

During the 8th World Congress on Targeting Mitochondria 2017, Dr. Vladimir Gogvadze from Karolinska Institute, Sweden will present his work on "Mitochondria: a switchboard between various cell death modalities".
