2015 CHAIN Colloquium

Fifth Annual Chronic HIV and Aging in NeuroAIDS Colloquium - May 20, 2015

Mitochondria are key in normal and pathological processes in the body. Their physiological role, including the well-known generation of energy, also includes cellular signaling, differentiation and death as well as other important physiological roles. Recent work unraveling the complex interplay between the mitochondria’s regulation of cellular function and cellular processes that regulate mitochondria themselves have lead to key advances in our knowledge as well as pointed out gaps in our understanding.

This colloquium will address the roles mitochondria play in current disorders afflicting those with HIV, with a focus on the brain. Lessons from the biology and physiology of mitochondrial, aging, neurodegenerative diseases, the effects of therapeutic agents and more will bring together leaders in the field enabling the communication of state of the art knowledge. This forum will enable the communication of state of the art knowledge and how cross-fertilization of overlapping expertise allows us to find ways to address ongoing issues.
