Speaker Bio: David Chan studies how the dynamic behaviors of mitochondria within a cell are controlled and how they affect cell and tissue physiology. These studies have implications for a broad range of human diseases, particularly neurological disorders. Mitochondria are dynamic organelles that continually undergo fusion, fission, and trafficking (Figure 1 and Movie 1). These fundamental cell biological processes control mitochondrial shape, number, size, distribution, and physiology. We study the molecular basis for these dynamic properties and their impact on development and disease.
