7th MiPconference MiP2010
Obergurgl, Tyrol, Austria - 27. Sep to 1. Oct 2010
MiP2010 is organized and supported as a FEBS workshop Mitochondrial Physiology. The Many Functions of the Organism in Our Cells, as acontinuation of a series of events focusing on mitochondrial physiology in health and disease. Mitochondrial research has recently undergone a dramatic renaissance, due to numerous discoveries revealing its central role in cell death, disease pathology, aging, thermogenesis, oxidative stress, cell signalling, cellular regulation and cell bioenergetics. Mitochondria are studied frequently as isolated organelles, thus the current developments strongly ask for a more integrative approach in this methodologically and conceptually complex field, and this integrative and functionally oriented perspective is the topic of mitochondrial physiology. The aim of the workshop is to bring experts together working on mitochondrial physiology in different fields, covering aspects from basic science to clinically orientation. This workshop on mitochondrial physiology spans from the molecular level to the interactions within the cell, to organ systems, and to organismic complexity. In addition to the latest scientific findings, new methodological developments in measuring mitochondrial function and dysfunction are presented.

MiP2010 - Science and Art - The Beauty of Mitochondria
The contributions by Nick Lane and Odra Noel in the final session of MiP2010 were the highlights of a most enjoyable and inspiring MiPconference. We received an overwhelmingly positive feedback on MiP2010 in general and on the last evening of the meeting in particular.
Nick's broad perspective (see abstract) encouraged us all to think beyond the narrow confinements of our specialized fields, and consider science as it should be practiced and communicated at universities. His energetic and compact presentation was just excellent, providing further confirmation that such meetings can be run on a 10+5 min basis - avoiding parallel sessions -, even for special evening lectures.
Odra Noel's MiPArt exhibition and presentation (Life Immitates Art Immitates Life) opened up our minds for an appreciation that we do study life, and that the study of life transcends the limitations of science, whereas science transcends the limitations of art. Thus Odra Noel not only summarized a view on Mitochondrial Science and Art as a driving force for MiP2010, but provided a vision for future perspectives, enriching MiPmeetings with a new dimension of communication, a communication that joins young and established scientists.
