Mayo Clinic Research Research Centre

Mayo Clinic Laboratories is a global reference laboratory that helps health care providers worldwide advance patient care, strengthen your practice, and broaden access to specialized testing. Mayo Clinic studies how mitochondria react to stress associated with the development of neurodegenerative diseases and aging. Assessment of mitochondrial motility along axons and dendrites and evaluation of mitochondrial fission and fusion in vitro and in vivo helps scientists understand early molecular mechanisms of human conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, multiple sclerosis, metabolic disorders and aging and provide strategies or combinations of strategies for early interventions.
