Our view of mitochondria is rapidly transforming. Recent advances in animal models, systems-based approaches, and imaging techniques have revealed that mitochondria have diverse functions beyond bioenergetics and biosynthesis. Their functions are linked to their surprisingly dynamic behavior, as mitochondria adapt and respond to a plethora of cellular and tissue-specific organismal needs. Given that mitochondrial dysfunction is associated with metabolic disorders, cancer, and neurodegeneration, there is an urgent need to understand how mitochondrial events are orchestrated and integrated within the cell and organism. This Cell Symposium aims to bring together leading researchers who study mitochondrial function, regulation and mechanism to build a complete picture of mitochondria as a platform to integrate signaling pathways and cellular processes in physiology and disease. ...

The challenge of a sustainable world requires, besides knowledge, creativity and a holistic perspective to realize the conservation and best possible use of natural resources. We mycorrhizologists ought to take up this challenge and contribute to the preservation and careful management of resources, generating knowledge that is not only novel but also connected to the goals of sustainability and human well-being. In ICOM 10 we wish to encourage innovation in order to generate basic and applied knowledge in a different way, a way committed to sustainable development. This is why we are inviting you all to Mexico, to Merida, in the heart of ancestral Mayan culture, a culture with an astounding development of abstract knowledge and knowledge of nature. ...
