 Dr.-Wikstrom Mitochondria-Speakers-TrameDuring Targeting Mitochondria 2019, a Special session will be dedicated to Mitochondria, Metabolism and Skin.

One of the speakers of this session is Dr. Jakob Wikström from Karolinska University Hospital, Sweden and present talk entitled "Mitochondria and Skin: Mitochondria in Wound Healing".

Dr. Jakob Wikström: "Healing of common chronic skin leg ulcers in the elderly requires ATP to regenerate lost tissue.
