Mitochondrial involvement in cell life/death regulation: Presentation of new scientific results

Vladimir Gogvadze Targeting Mitochondria 2018 Speaker

Prof. Vladimir Gogvadze from from Karolinska Institute, Sweden will give talk entitled "Mitochondrial involvement in cell life/death regulation: Presentation of new scientific results" during the next 9th World Congress on Targeting Mitochondria on October 23-25, 2018,  which will be held at Steingenberger Hotel, in Berlin, Germany


Prof. Vladimir Gogvadze summarized his presentation as:

Mitochondria are to a great extent engaged in the modulation of cell viability and death. The involvement of mitochondria in the etiology of various diseases has been confirmed repeatedly, and new data have been obtained on the possibility of combating various pathologies by targeting these organelles. Mitochondria not only regulate various cell death modalities, but also control a crosstalk between them. Precise mechanisms of this crosstalk regulation are still poorly understood. Uncovering the role of mitochondria in the regulation of the crosstalk between various forms of cell death will help to develop new therapeutic strategies in fighting cancer, hematological, neurodegenerative and autoimmune disorders.
