Meet our

Medical Board

Finding new and viable treatments – and that all elusive cure – for mitochondrial diseases, plays an important part in the foundation’s aims. To ensure we find pioneering research projects and gain the very best knowledge and expertise available to help better support those affected with mito, we are working with experts in the field of mitochondrial medicine from around the world.

Our medical board not only supports us with projects and clients, they review our research proposals to ensure we are investing in the very best research projects available.

We are honoured to be working with:
