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.

Non-Coding RNAs in Nuclear-Mitochondrial Crosstalk : Applications for RNA Medicine - New Topic 2020

Picture-Nucleus-mito-crosstalk-25022020

A special session will be dedicated to Non-coding RNAs in Nuclear-Mitochondrial Crosstalk: Applications for RNA Medicine.

The objective of this special session is to share the latest advances on the ncRNA diversity, molecular mechanisms and their impact on mitochondrial functions and nuclear-mitochondrial crosstalk.

Round table: Prospective on other mitochondrial gene therapies:

 

mitochondrial gene editing, mitochondrial gene transfer, mitochondria transfer,....

All speakers and some participants - moderated by Ivan Tarassov, UNISTRA, Strasbourg, France.


Chairpersons: Eric Barrey, GABI & (INRAE) and Nina Entelis (UNISTRA) - France

Objective: Non-coding RNAs (ncRNA) either encoded by the mitochondrial genome or imported into mitochondria represent today an emerging field that draws significant scientific attention due to their importance for human and animal health. The objective of this special session is to share the latest advances on the ncRNA diversity, molecular mechanisms and their impact on mitochondrial functions and nuclear-mitochondrial crosstalk. This opens new horizons for developing diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for diseases like cancers, cardiovascular, muscular and mitochondrial diseases.

Call for Short communications or Posters

Short presentations and/or posters on mitochondrial genomics, ncRNA, RNA therapy will be accepted.
