Workshop: Role of mitochondria in cardiac disease

Date: 04.05.2018, Time: 09:00-13:00 followed by lunch
Place: Runde auditorium R-105, Domus Medica, University of Oslo

This annual Workshop is the main meeting place for Center for Heart Failure Research’s focus area Cardiac mitochondria in health and disease.

During ischemia the cardiac mitochondria becomes mediators of damage both acutely and chronically. This workshop will focus on how mitochondria mediate death in cardiac disease.

Invited speaker: Professor Mike Murphy,
MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit, Cambridge, UK

Lecture: "Understanding and preventing mitochondrial oxidative damage in cardiac ischaemia-reperfusion injury"

Professor Mike Murphy

The Focus Areas are dedicated to specific topics of interest to several groups in the Center for Heart Failure Research. The aim of each focus area is to facilitate exchange of ideas, common projects and collaboration with international partners.

Focus Area Leader: May-Kristin Torp, Heart Physiology group, Division of Physiology, Department of Molecular Medicine, Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, University of Oslo
Co-organizer: Professor Kåre-Olav Stensløkken

Focus area: Cardiac mitochondria in health and disease
