Mitochondrial research has advanced significantly over the last decade due to the development of new techniques that allow the investigation of mitochondrial functions from new angles. This Joint FEBS/EMBO Lecture Course will cover diverse and prevalent topics related to mitochondrial biology, including I) mitochondrial biogenesis and the role of mitochondria in the control of cellular metabolism, II) mitochondrial dynamics and organellar quality control, III) mitochondrial communication with the cell with a focus on membrane contact sites, and IV) engineering of mitochondrial functions through the development of novel tools to study and functionally manipulate these complex organelles.
