The energy needed by cells is generated by cellular power plants, called mitochondria. Besides energy generation they are involved in a wide range of cellular processes, including regulation of cell death and initiation of inflammatory responses. This central role led to a great interest in mitochondria as pharmacological targets. We do, however, only have limited knowledge about the mechanisms by which drugs enter the mitochondria to exert beneficial or adverse effects. In this talk I will discuss how drugs can affect mitochondria and how we are investigating their mitochondrial uptake. (no prior knowledge about mitochondria or pharmacology is necessary)
