Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar: Mitochondrial Ion Stress in Neurodegeneration

Date: Sept. 29, 2023

Time: 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.

About this Seminar

Mitochondria are the center of cellular metabolism and communication. Mitochondria can also sense varying stress pathways and elicit responses. These multifaceted mitochondrial functions play a key part in maintaining cellular health and death. Here Dr. Wang will talk about a mitochondrial inside-out ionic signal that plays a role in Parkinson’s neurodegeneration.
