Recent years have witnessed a growing excitement in the field of mitochondrial biology, with a dramatic increase in our appreciation of the diversity and complexity of mitochondrial function. Rather than simply acting as isolated energy-generating organelles, as once thought, we now know that these organelles are involved in a variety of tasks to maintain physiological processes. Disturbances of mitochondrial function are implicated in many diseases, ranging from neurological diseases to cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.
