"Moving from 50 year old Clark electrodes to the XF technology will greatly advance our understanding of cellular bioenergetics," added Martin Brand. "It is essential that scientists understand how to use this new technology to its fullest capabilities and how to properly interpret these types of data. David Nicholls and I are committed to seeing cellular bioenergetics grow from a specialty field to a broad area of study."
Seahorse plans additional Cellular Bioenergetics Workshops enabling new discoveries on the role of cellular bioenergetics in cancer, ageing, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and toxicology, Visit www.seahorsebio.com for details.
About Workshop Leaders
Dr. David Nicholls is Professor of Mitochondria Physiology the Buck Institute for Age Research specializing in mitochondrial dysfunction. He is also a visiting Professor in the Dept. of Experimental Brain Research and Diabetes Centre at the University of Lund Sweden. Dr. Nicholls is widely recognized for insightful research that has kept him at the forefront of mitochondrial physiology his entire career. Most recently he has focused on studying bioenergetics in intact cells, specifically in neurons in order to understand life and death decisions that are pathologic in neurodegenerative diseases. His lab's focus on putting bioenergetics in the context of living cells is necessary in order to gain a better understanding of these dynamic and integrated systems. The laboratory is a world-leader in this area.
Dr. Martin Brand is Professor of Cellular Bioenergetics and Director of the Morphology core at the Buck Institute for Age Research and a Group Leader for the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit in Cambridge, UK. Dr. Brand is widely regarded as one of the leading authori
