Mitochondria, Metabolism and Heart Failure

The objectives of this meeting are: 1) To mechanistically connect the fundamental biology of metabolism and mitochondrial function with the pathogenesis of heart failure, a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the world; and 2) To increase basic understanding of metabolism and mitochondrial function using observations in cardiac muscle, a traditional platform for these studies. A major innovation of this proposed meeting is its ability to examine metabolism, mitochondrial function, and heart failure in an integrated context and in the depth required to critically examine existing paradigms. The second significant innovation is to have the meeting run concurrently with a meeting on Diabetes and Metabolic Dysfunction.
