Mitochondrial Physiology - Summer School – University of Copenhagen

Mitochondrial Physiology 
- From Organelle to Organism

19-23 August 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Mitochondrial Physiology Course in Copenhagen. The focus of the course is to combine state-of-art lectures with hands-on analyses of aspects of mitochondrial function and morphology using different techniques.

We will present you with several choices of mitochondrial analyses that you can consider in your own research. For example, respirometry of smooth muscle cells, muscle and adipose tissue by the Oroboros instrument, cell respiration by Seahorse Bioscience instruments and ROS production by amplex red detection.

We do not pretend to provide you with a full training course in these techniques, but you will by the end of the week have gained a better understanding of the limitations, pit-falls and advantages of many of the currently available techniques to study mitochondrial physiology. An important part of the course is to present your own research interest to the other participants by means of poster presentations, which will facilitate scientific discussions and enlarge your “mitochondrial network”.
