Mitochondrial Disease

Mitochondrial Disease PSP page image

Co-ordinated by the Genetic Alliance UK, the Mitochondrial Disease PSP will identify unanswered questions related to primary mitochondrial disease both in adults and children. Primary mitochondrial disease refers to a group of disorders caused by mutations in DNA that lead to disturbances of mitochondrial structure and function. Mitochondria are tiny structures present in nearly every cell in our bodies which generate about 90% of the energy we need to live.  

The initial question-gathering survey for this PSP opened in March 2019.
