Why mitochondria

For a long time, we thought
mitochondria were just the powerhouses of the cell.

This has never been true.
 
Mitochondria are the most interactive organelles in the eukaryotic cell. With only 1.4% of the human genome controlling their function, mitochondria have the striking capability to govern a multitude of cellular functions, from metabolism and ion homeostasis to cell fate and immunity.  
 
At MitoCare, our team pairs advanced, high-resolution 3D imaging modalities in vitro
and in vivo with other cutting-edge technologies to study mitochondrial health and disease pathogenesis, diagnostics, and potential therapeutic targets.

New Funding!

Congratulations to Dr. Seifert for receiving a Department of Defense Discovery Award.

This award will support Dr. Seifert’s efforts to understand the role of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore in the pathogenesis of mitochondrial myopathy
