Description: The National Cancer Institute along with the National Institutes of Health's Mitochondria Interest Group invites you to attend an upcoming seminar featuring Dr. Peter Pedersen, Professor of Biological Chemistry at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Mitochondrial defects have long been suspected to play an important role in the development and progression of cancer. More than 70 years ago, Warburg pioneered the research on mitochondrial respiration alterations in the context of cancer and proposed a mechanism to explain how they evolve during the carcinogenic process. Dr. Pedersen's laboratory investigates the relationship of cell energetics to molecular medicine and cancer. Both mitochondrial and glycolytic processes are being studied at the tissue, cell, and molecular level. The relationships of these processes to cancer also are being studied with the objective of discovering and developing new therapies.

Dr. Pedersen's seminar will explore novel opportunities on further understanding the pathogenesis and improving the treatment of cancer as it specifically relates to the mitochondria.
