Mitochondrial Disease Research Centre

Mitochondrial Disease Research Centre

The Mitochondrial Disease Research Centre was established in 2002 and is dedicated to understanding the role that mitochondria play in health and disease. The primary objectives of the Centre are to identify ways to improve the health outcomes of people with mitochondrial disease, develop better methods to diagnose patients with mitochondrial disease and promote links between the research community, patient advocacy groups, patients, and their carers.

We use the latest advances in genomics in combination with biomarkers to improve the diagnostic pathway for affected patients and have developed patient-derived cell models to further investigate disease mechanisms.
