Summary of "YoungMito 2018: Report on the 1st International Mitochondria Meeting for Young Scientists."

The 1st International Mitochondria Meeting for Young Scientists (International YoungMito 2018) was held at Hotel Co-op Inn Kyoto in Kyoto, Japan, from 20 to 22 April 2018. The meeting was attended by 130 mitochondrial researchers from 15 countries. International YoungMito 2018 was the first international mitochondria meeting held in Japan organized by and for young mitochondrial researchers. Over the 3-day period, there were 28 oral presentations including two keynote lectures, 20 presentations from invited speakers, and six short talks selected from abstract submissions. Many different topics were covered including quality control pathways acting against mitochondrial stresses, mitochondrial dynamics, protein/lipid transport, cristae organization, respiration/ATP synthesis, mtDNA maintenance, mitochondrial disease models, and pharmacological approaches. In addition, we had 64 posters, a number which represented almost half of all attendees. Thanks to the cutting-edge information and high-quality unpublished data that were presented, there were many lively discussions during oral and poster sessions that continued into the coffee breaks, lunchtime, and nighttime discussions. The 1st international YoungMito meeting was successful in promoting intellectual exchange among all participants, facilitating collaborations beyond national boundaries, and closed with great success. It was a great pleasure that many participants were looking forward to the next YoungMito meeting.
