Gyorgy Hajnoczky, Director of the MitoCare Center
Exerpt from MitoCare Inauguration Speech
We are very excited to open the MitoCare Center at Jefferson and look forward to exploiting microscopic imaging and other advanced technologies to delineate the multiple emerging mechanisms by which mitochondria are involved in normal tissue function and human diseases... I often receive calls from patients looking for help with their illness and this resource would help meet that need.
