Euromit 2014

800 participants from 32 countries, including distinguished medical professionals, geneticists, nutritionists, psychologists and pioneer researchers and scientists gathered at Tampere, Finland during the week

15 – 19 June 2014, to discuss mitochondrial disease, treatments, next generation genome sequencing and the prospects of personalised medicine.

The Found & Chair of JHF, Christina Hellmann, and a Director of the Board, Professor Christine Chow, did a wonderful job presenting the pioneering work of JHF, including the innovative programme of yoga and art therapy for children with rare disease and special needs, and the new born screening programme in Hong Kong, which has conducted over 5000 screens in the past year – more than double the original estimate of demand.

We look forward to more good work through research and collaboration with our international comunities of professionals, parents and patient groups.
