Euromit IV - Call for abstracts
Euromit IV, the Fourth European Meeting on Mitochondrial Pathology,
will be held at Queens' College, Cambridge on 16th-19th September
1999. This meeting will cover all aspects of mitochondrial disease,
ranging from clinical pathology to the molecular mechanisms underlying
the disease. This will be the fourth Euromit meeting in approximately
ten years, all of which have been successful as witnessed by the
increasing number of delegates and the acceptance of all invitations by
the leading international investigators. Although various aspects of
mitochondrial disease are catered for in other scientific meetings,
Euromit is unique in retaining mitochondrial pathology as its focus.
Mitochondrial disease is a burgeoning area of research interest. It is
a particularly exciting time, as the underlying genetic defects are
being reported not only for mitochondrial disorders associated with
mutation of the mitochondrial genome, but also of the nuclear genome.
Consequently, the meeting is timely.
Euromit traditionally represents a forum for both clinicians and basic
scientists and we welcome delegates from both sides of the clinical
