MitoQMB - Mitochondrial Biology

7th-8th September 2017

Rydges Hotel, Queenstown

This meeting will bring together a diverse array of cell biologists, biochemists, molecular biologists and physiologists from around New Zealand and Australia who investigate many of the fascinating aspects of mitochondrial biology. Mitochondria are recognised to play a central role in a number of physiological and disease processes. This is an ideal opportunity to hear about the latest research and to learn about the various expertise and technologies available in our region. Student prizes at this meeting will be sponsored by In Vitro Technologies, the Australasian suppliers of Seahorse Extracellular Flux Analysers
