Welcome to the Mitochondria and Metabolism Center
Mitochondria and metabolism are closely related disciplines vital to human biology, physiology and diseases. Today, mitochondria and metabolism studies continue to fascinate us with the observations that alterations of mitochondrial function and cell metabolism control life span in multiple model organisms. Furthermore, it is increasingly recognized that acquired mitochondrial dysfunction is a hallmark of highly prevalent diseases such as obesity/diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. These and many other discoveries in recent years have brought the ancient disciplines back to the center stage of science.
The Mitochondria and Metabolism Center at the University of Washington is the home of a large diverse community of researchers. The center occupies ~8000 square feet at the South Lake Union (SLU) campus, housing a group of core faculty, the High Resolution NMR Spectroscopy facility and the Mass Spectrometry and Microimaging (HRIM) facility. The SLU site serves as an anchor to bring together multi-disciplinary investigators across the university and its affiliated institutions, foster interactions, and share resources.
