Obesity and the Metabolic Syndrome: Mitochondria and Energy Expenditure

This meeting discusses novel findings that link mitochondrial function in peripheral tissues, such as liver, muscle and gut, with the systemic abnormalities of the metabolic syndrome. As mitochondrial function is now acknowledged to also control metabolic homeostasis on an organismal level in addition to controlling energy homeostasis at the cellular level, this meeting will create a truly interdisciplinary environment that brings together basic scientists in the fields of bioenergetics, mitochondrial and cell biology, physiology and clinicians with an interest in metabolic disease, to foster innovative ideas in this area.
