Mitochondrial Uncoupling for Therapeutic Development in Metabolic Diseases and Cancer

Time: 2:30 pm
day: Day One


  • Investigating how mitochondrial function deterioration is an important causal factor for several diseases, including NASH, type 2 diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases
  • Exploring mitochondria-related metabolic changes (e.g. the Warburg Effect) and how it’s essential for the transformation of normal cells to cancer cells
  • Examining how mitochondrial uncoupling provides a unique opportunity for effective treatment of these major diseases through eliminating the corresponding root causes
  • Presenting strategies, approaches and examples in targeting mitochondrial uncoupling for therapeutic development
