About the Symposium

The United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation Symposium has been recognized by many researchers, scientists, and families as THE symposium for mitochondrial disease in the world. 15 years ago, the UMDF had only a handful of exhibitors and less than 200 scientific attendees. We now have more exhibitors than space at times and close to 650 attendees…representing almost every state in the United States and more than 15 different countries from around the world.

2020 Welcome

On behalf of the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF), the Mitochondria Research Society, the Mitochondrial Medicine Society and PeerPoint Medical Education Institute, we would like to invite you to attend Mitochondrial Medicine 2020, the UMDF’s international symposium dedicated to mitochondrial medicine, to be held June 24 – 27, 2020, at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort, Phoenix, Arizona, USA.  This year’s theme will be Mitochondrial Medicine – Back to the Future.

The symposium planning committee has brought together another spectacular faculty for this year’s symposium. Based on our past annual symposia, we expect several hundred researchers and clinicians to attend this meeting.

This is the 22nd annual conference organized by UMDF, bringing together clinical and basic science researchers sharing an interest in mitochondria. Participants come from many fields, including biochemistry, genetics, neurosciences, cardiology, cancer, diabetes, nephrology, hematology, pediatrics and aging research. At any major scientific meeting, a handful of presentations on mitochondrial disease will be found, but in order to stimulate research interactions in this ever-expanding cross-disciplinary field, the UMDF symposium focuses entirely on mitochondrial medicine.

The UMDF mission is to promote research and education for the diagnosis, treatment and cure of mitochondrial disorders and to provide support to affected individuals and families.

Join us in Phoenix, Arizona, as we continue to set the pace in mitochondrial medicine, encouraging the exchange of information and cultivating networks among physicians, researchers, patients and families!
