Welcome to the MiP 2017/MitoEAGLE Conference in Hradec Králové!

“The role of mitochondria in lifestyle and metabolic syndrome – MITOEAGLE perspectives”

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite you to the MiP 2017 / MitoEAGLE Conference, held on 15 – 18 November 2017 in Hradec Králové, Czech Republic.

Hradec Králové is located 100 km eastwards from Prague at the confluence of Elbe and Orlice rivers. It is a city rich in history which goes back to 1225. The architecture is a gentle combination of various historic styles and modern construction. There are numerous original buildings especially from the period of Art Nouveau and functionalism. Because of them HK is called “Salon of the Republic”. In the last century famous architects of European significance, Jan Kotěra and Jan Gočár, contributed to its urban conception.

The city has a long tradition of tertiary education especially in the fields of medicine, pharmacy and pedagogy, therefore thousands of students come every academic year and create the student atmosphere.

Hradec Králové is also a city of culture, since many international festivals are held there on regular basis. Locals and tourists enjoy visiting Philharmonic Orchestra, Drama Theatre and world-renowned Puppet Theatre Drak where the social evening and performance will be prepared for you.

Hopefully, you will be able to indulge in the city. We are looking forward to meeting you!

On behalf of the organisers
