- Therefore, we would like to ask you the following:
- What is your experience with examining fatty acid oxidation in permeabilized muscle fibres?
- Which fatty acids do you use?
- A) Octanoylcarnitine
- B) Palmitylcarnitine
- C) Other (please specify)
- The results of this survey will be summarized in the O2k-Network discussion forum: » http://wiki.oroboros.at/index.php/O2k-Network_discussion_forum
- 015. 2015-09-24: The MitoFit project was approved by the Tyrolean Government with a budget of € 1.3 Mill. Our main aim is the development of novel laboratory standards and diagnostic monitoring of a mitochondrial fitness score. The Universities of Innsbruck and industry partners collaborate with international strategic partners in this ambitious programme:
- MitoFit Training Camp 2016 Kuehtai AT: Immediately following EBEC 2016 organized by Paolo Bernardi in Riva del Garda, the first ‘MitoFit Training Camp’ will take place on 2016 July 7-13, at the High Altitude Training Center Kühtai at an altitude of 2020 m. The MitoFit Training Camp will provide a unique opportunity to receive first-hand introductions to state-of-the-art diagnostic monitoring of mitochondrial respiratory function. A wide range of areas will be covered on protective medicine, exercise physiology, mitochondrial pharmacology, aging, to comparative mitochondrial physiology (cell types, tissues, species).

- .. the mito-fit paper on the elderly was great! Anthony Hickey; O2k-Network Lab: NZ Auckland Hickey AJ (2015-06-10).
- Thank you for the update publication. It's quite inspiring. Ping Zheng (2015-06-09).
- Thanks for sending this interesting study conducted in PBMCs for the bioblast group. Marcus Oliveira; O2k-Network Lab: BR Rio de Janeiro Oliveira MF (2015-05-08).
- This is the first glimpse I have seen of MitoFit, and I have to tell you it's brilliant! When we launched Team MitoCanada a few years back combined with all the recent research and correlation to general health and Mito health, it just seems like the natural progression. We are taking a new approach to mitochondrial health as well with MitoCanada and reading your webpage really confirms the need to consider the full spectrum of mitochondrial health as part of our awareness strategy.
