Abstract: 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.
