Every year the Translational Research in Mitochondria, Aging, and Disease (TRiMaD) Symposium brings together approximately 150-200 scientists from the Northeast to discuss the role of mitochondria in aging and disease. This two-day symposium promises to be very exciting and hopefully will be fruitful in initiating collaboration between groups with common interests in our region. Our Keynote Speakers this year are Roberta Gottlieb (Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles) and Mark Stoneking (Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig). Confirmed speakers include: - David Brown (Virginia Tech) - Zhenglong Gu (Cornell University) - Konstantin Khrapko (Northeastern University) - Smita Patel (Rutgers) - Agnel Sfeir (NYU) - Hazel Szeto (Weill Cornell Medical College)
