Targeting Mitochondria 2020 will be a Virtual and In-Person Congress


We have been closely following updates and evolving guidance from local, national and global agencies for COVID-19. There is still much uncertainty around the coronavirus, and how long our communities may be impacted by the pandemic, but it seems certain that decisions about how we work, travel and gather together will continue to be influenced for weeks and months still to come. Today, we have made the decision to combine the In-Person and Virtual conference.


If you cannot attend in-person or virtual due to the restriction and time zone difference, you can access on-demand videos to this entire event, including synced audio/video and slides.

All posters will be in PDF format. You can visit them, upload and interact directly with the poster presenter. You can also exchange with speakers via direct or private exchange during the conference.


We will keep you informed of any new decision.

Reversing wrinkled skin and lost hair in mice by restoring mitochondrial function

Keshav Singh-Targeting-Mitochondria-2018-updatedProf. Keshav K. Singh from University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA will join the 9th World congress on Targeting Mitochondria which will be held in Berlin, in October 23-25, 2018 and give presentation entitled "Reversing wrinkled skin and lost hair in mice by restoring mitochondrial function".

Summary of presentation: "Our studies show that ubiquitous mitochondrial dysfunction in mice leads to predominant and profound effects on the skin resulting in wrinkles and visual hair loss with an increased number of dysfunctional hair follicles and inflammatory responses. Development of skin wrinkle was associated with the significant epidermal hyperplasia, hyperkeratosis, increased expression of matrix metalloproteinases and decreased expression of matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor. Surprisingly restoring mitochondrial function in mice reversed skin to normal and restored hair. To our knowledge that restoration of mitochondrial functions can reverse the skin and hair pathology is unprecedented."
