Vamsi K Mootha MD delivers the 6th Annual Sir John Walker Lecture

The 6th Annual Sir John Walker Lecture, 'Genomics approaches to mitochondrial physiology and disease', was delivered on Thursday, 22 February 2018, by Vamsi Mootha, MD.

Dr Mootha is an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and a Professor of Systems Biology and of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. His laboratory is based in the Department of Molecular Biology at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Broad Institute, where he leads a research team dedicated to mitochondrial biology.

The lecture was extremely well attended and the audience was interested to learn about Dr Mootha's genomics research on systematically investigating mitochondria in health and in disease, and his new work on the unexpected interactions between mitochondrial dysfunction and environmental oxygen.
