ROS and Mitochondria in Nervous System Function and Disease 27—29 March 2017 Charles Darwin House, London, UK



A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting

From the website:

This meeting will explore how the roles of ROS and mitochondria intersect in neuronal signal transduction, the underlying biochemical processes and how these mechanisms modulate neuronal function. ROS and mitochondrial signalling are vitally important, not only in nervous system development and function, but also in neurological disease. The meeting will be relevant to researchers interested in basic mechanisms, but also those studying clinical aspects relating to diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis among many others.

The major themes of the meeting are:

1.    ROS in signal transduction

2.    Mitochondria as a signalling organelle

3.    ROS and mitochondrial signalling in neuronal function

4.    New techniques for visualising ROS and mitochondria

5.     ROS and mitochondrial signalling in translational medicine
