Our main goal is to design and study novel biological materials for improving efficiency of electrical conductance in mitochondria membranes and optimization of mitochondrial structural and functional network capacity, which is required for the prevention and treatment of many mitochondria dysfunctions-associated diseases., such as neurodegenerative diseases, heart disease, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, retinal diseases, cancer, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
