They are putting together an exciting scientific/clinicial program encompassing new discoveries about mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) structure and function, the role of the mitochondrion in the immune system, the effects on mitochondrial function of viral infection, and novel mitochondrial genetic therapies.
