About Meeting

Organized by Nankai University, Nature Cell Biology, Nature Metabolism and Nature Immunology

Mitochondria are the central and dynamic hub for cellular metabolism that govern both innate and adaptive immunity. Recent studies have established that the immune system is tightly coupled to mitochondrial biogenesis, dynamics and quality control, which can be exploited for therapeutic gain. To date, the intertwining relationship between mitochondria and immunity has become an active area of research. Therefore, we would like to invite leading scientists in these fields to discuss the interplay between mitochondria and immunity, which will advance our understanding of the crosstalk between mitochondria and immunity, and foster future collaborations.
