The Role of Mitochondria as major contributors to health and disease is being increasingly recognized.
Besides energy production, mitochondria have been implicated in various physiologic processes in relation to the specialized duties of the differentiated cell in which it resides.
These non-ATP-related functions are intimately involved with most of the major metabolic pathways used by a cell and therefore, damage to mitochondria can have widespread consequences affecting entire organ systems.
Mitochondrial dysfunction results in symptoms that are common complaints in almost every chronic disease, underlining the importance of supporting healthy mitochondrial function.
This comprehensive seminar series will enhance your understanding of the role of mitochondria in a host of conditions and provide clinically relevant information and treatment guidelines.
