Mitochondrial Disease affects around 6,000 adults and children in the UK, however most of us have not even heard of it. As a rare disease there is very little awareness, yet it has a major impact on families with sometimes devastating consequences.
Mitochondria are required to produce the energy that powers our cells, therefore vital for all the major organs of our body to function properly.
Our Scientists at Newcastle University are working very hard to find solutions that will make a major difference to the lives of patients and families affected by mitochondrial disease.
Thank you to all of our supporters as every donation made to the Mitochondrial Research Fund is greatly appreciated by the team. Your gifts are vital and will fund essential research to develop technologies that will help us to tackle mitochondrial disorders and provide better care for patients who have mitochondrial disease.
