How to evaluate mitochondrial function/dysfunction: from the bench to the bedside

Egbert Mik Targeting MitochondriaDr. Egbert Mik from the Department of Anesthesiology, Erasmus MC, University Medical Center Rotterdam, The Netherlands will give the introductory talk of the session "How to Evaluate Mitochondrial Function/Dysfunction?" during the 8th World Congress on Targeting Mitochondria which will be held at Steigenberger Hotel, Berlin on October 23-24, 2017.

His research focuses on tissue oxygenation, oxygen-dependent metabolic reprogramming and mitochondrial dysfunction in critical illness. Dr. Mik will talk about the necessity for an integrated and translational approach in mitochondrial research. The latest results regarding bedside measurements of mitochondrial oxygen tension and oxygen consumption in patients using the COMET monitor (Cellular Oxygen METabolism, measured by delayed fluorescence of protoporphyrin IX) will be presented.
