Winchester College

Science Society Lecture

Dr Michelangelo Campanella, from the Royal Veterinary College, gave a talk to Science Society entitled Mitochondria; what nourishes me, kills me. Dr Campanella started by explaining what a mitochondrion is and had some elegant electron microscopy photos of them. He explained the roles that mitochondria have. These range from energy production in cells to signalling within a cell and also cell death. There were a lot of thought-provoking questions after the talk.
