Abstract: The new European research project MiMage, supported by the European Community's Sixth Framework for Research and Technological Development, focuses on elucidating the role of mitochondria in conserved mechanisms of aging. Expertise in different research areas, including biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, molecular biology, and physiology, is provided by twelve research teams from seven European countries, together with one associated team from Canada and the United States. This report provides an introduction to the participating laboratories and the topics that will be addressed within the project, together with a concise report on the first symposium on the role of mitochondria in aging.
