Mitochondrial diseases

Theme leader: Jan Smeitink

The mission of this theme is to better understand the cellular bioenergetics in health and disease at all levels of complexity. The gained knowledge will enable us to develop preventive measures and make substantial contributions towards the development of rational treatment strategies for mitochondrial diseases.
