Luca Scorrano

Title: "Keeping mitochondria in shape: a matter of life and death"
Occasion: SFB Special Seminar
Host: Katia Cosentino
Start: 02.06.2022 - changed time, now at 12:00
Location: CellNanOs 38/201

About the speaker: Luca Scorrano researches apoptosis and mitochondrial pathophysiology at the University of Padua.

Abstract of the talk: In the last years, mitochondrial ultrastructural and morphological changes have been implied in the control of several physiological and pathological changes, including the progression of apoptosis, inflammation, differentiation, tumorigenesis. However, the role of mitochondrial dynamics in the control of complex cellular cues and in response to reversible and irreversible cellular damage is not yet clarified. We will overview the key experiments that shed light on the role of mitochondrial shape and ultrastructure in cell physiology, pathology and in disease and offer a personal perspective on the missing pieces of the puzzle that await to be studied.
