What happened at the summit in 2023?
The 2023 Mito Community Summit took place 20 – 21 October at the NSW Teachers Federation in Surry Hills, Sydney.
It was an amazing two days filled with great conversations, shared experiences and new connections. We heard from many mito community members and an impressive range of mito experts.
Thank you to everyone who shared their experiences and contributed.
Professor David Thorburn provided an update on some of the active research projects funded by Mito Foundation. This included mitoHOPE and mitoMDT, which involves a multi-disciplinary team working towards a 70% diagnostic rate for mito by 2025.
