From mitophagy to neurocognitive impairment

Discover the cutting-edge world of mitochondrial research at the upcoming conference, “From Mitophagy to Neurocognitive Impairment,” hosted by the Department of Neurology, Second Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and Motol University Hospital with the University in Oslo. Join us in exploring more about mitophagy and cognitive health.

The conference program brings up-to-date findings in the neurodegenerative cascade of Alzheimer’s disease. We will start with the knowledge about mitophagy (the mechanism of recycling damaged mitochondria), whose disruption may be at the very beginning of the disease, and the possibilities of its therapeutic influence. We will also present brain organoids modeling the pathophysiology and blood-based biomarkers reflecting Alzheimer’s pathology in preclinical and clinical studies. We will not omit the most common clinical manifestations in patients, including methods of experimental neuropsychology, and conclude with a look into the future treatment of this insidious disease.
