MMIG

The Mitochondria and Metabolism Interest Group (MMIG) is composed of researchers from  the University of Washington and affiliated institutions who have  active research in the areas of metabolism and mitochondria. Each month, current research findings from MMIG members are presented and discussed in a seminar format.

MMIG Presentations Schedule:

Location: UW Medicine at South Lake Union, E Building,  E130AB*

The MMIG will be held on the first Monday of the month from 12:30  to 1:30 pm, in E130AB, E Building, South Lake Union campus.  A light lunch will be provided. We will feature two speakers at each meeting, one group will cover biological discoveries, and the second will focus on laboratory techniques.
