Abstract: The 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. This Perspective summarizes a selection of talks presented in April 2006 at the second MiMage symposium by members from participating laboratories and invited speakers.
