Mitochondria are essential for synthesising ATP required for cellular metabolism. Mitochondria are able to alter their morphology and abundance through the balance of fission and fusion genes. T2DM is often accompanied by a metabolic syndrome within the individual. The aim of my PhD is to investigate whether metabolic dysregulation in T2DM can be linked to dysfunction within their mitochondria.
