Mitochondrial Medicine: Recent Advances & Perspectives

Alessia-Angelin-Mitochondria-2018Dr. Alessia Angelin from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, USA  will give presentation about "Mitochondrial Medicine: Recent Advances & Perspectives during the 9th World Congress on Targeting Mitochondria, which will be held at Steigenberger Hotel, Berlin on October 23-25, 2018.

Dr. Alessia Angelin highlights her research as: "T-regulatory (Treg) cells maintain peripheral tolerance and prevent autoimmunity, but their immune suppressive properties can also work to a disadvantage in the tumor microenvironment. Solid tumors can be depleted of glucose and enriched with lactic acid. This can weaken anti-tumor immunity, as cytotoxic and effector T cells require glycolysis to proliferate and produce cytokines."
