About the Workshop

Mitochondria are cells’ energy centers and a central point where a number of signaling pathways leading to cell death converge, leading to activation of apoptotic machinery and impairment of cells’ bioenergetic functions. Moreover, cellular homeostasis is regulated through mitophagy, the specific elimination of mitochondria through autophagy. Since both cellular metabolism and apoptotic pathways are compromised in many cancers, mitochondria-targeting drugs are considered as viable alternatives to eradicate chemotherapy-resistant cancer cells, since they directly initiate mitochondrial perturbations independently of upstream signaling events. This will provide novel insights into the control of mitochondrial functions and their deregulation in human cancers that has a major potential for development of innovative cancer therapeutics.

The overall aim of this EMBO Workshop is to bring together world leaders in several areas of biology and medicine, focusing on mitochondria and cancer from the point of view of cell death, the most efficient way to combat cancer.

Presenters of short talks will be selected based on the quality of their submitted abstracts by the program committee. Where possible preference will be given to young scientists at the beginning of their research career and a fair representation of gender will be taken into consideration. Selected poster authors will be asked to provide a short oral presentation.

Abstract guidelines

  • Abstracts should contain 400-500 words, including titles, authors and affiliation and should not exceed one page.
  • Figure, table or other illustrations should not be included in the abstracts.

It is the author's responsibility to submit a correct abstract; any errors in spelling, grammar, or scientific fact will be reproduced as typed by the author.

Poster specifications

Poster boards will be 90 cm wide by 105 cm high. Recommended poster size is thus 80 cm by 90 cm.

A poster should be simple, self-contained and self-explanatory, clearly presenting the major results and conclusions of the study. Please use clear, visible graphics and large type.
