Date:  Tuesday 30th April 2019, 9.30am - 5.30pm

Venue: Academic Block at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford OX3 9DU



This one day meeting is ideal for researchers with an interest in mitochondria from academia and pharma. It will include a range of short talks and posters on cancer metabolism, neuroscience, diabetes, mitochondrial disorders and general mitochondrial biology. We are normally full and this year our famous Indian wraps and fancy cakes will again be on offer at lunch time.



The deadline for abstracts for short talks and posters is the 1st April with registration if places available. Registration is open until the 21st April.  Abstracts should be emailed to:
