Mitochondrial Dynamics and Physiology
joint with The Chemistry and Biology of Cell Death
Organizer(s): Rodrigue Rossignol and Heidi M. McBride
Date: February 18 - 23, 2014
Location: Santa Fe Community Convention Center, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Sponsored by Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences
Summary of Meeting:
The recent discovery of mitochondrial implication in a priori unrelated domains of biology and medicine such as innate immunity, bioenergetics and chemoresistance fosters the need for a multidisciplinary consideration of mitochondrial research. Moreover, in the field of mitochondrial research, physiology and pathology are closely linked since accumulated knowledge in mitochondrial dynamics and bioenergetics emanates from the investigation of mitochondrial dysfunction in different types of diseases, including common neurodegenerative disorders, rare diseases or cancer. For instance, cancer research evidenced the existence of oncometabolites and the disclosure of key metabolic regulations driven by oncogenes and tumor suppressors, as shown for P53 and Tigar on glycolysis or C-MYC and mitochondrial glutaminase on oxidative phosphorylation. The field of immunology revealed that memory lymphocytes must undergo a bioenergetic transition in order to perform adaptive immunity, and the field of cardiovascular diseases boosted fundamental research with the determination hepatology advanced our understanding of the role of the ectopic mitochondrial F1F0-ATPsynthase in cholesterol uptake and cardiovascular diseases. This 2014 Keystone Symposia meeting on “Mitochondrial Dynamics and Physiology” highlights the benefit of such interdisciplinary mitochondrial research for gathering innovative knowledge in biology and fostering interdisciplinary interactions.
