The Mitochondria and Metabolism Center (MMC) at the University of Washington is home to a large and diverse community of researchers. The MMC was established in 2009 by Dr. Rong Tian to explore mitochondrial functioning specifically in cardiac muscle tissue. Since that time the center has grown steadily in members, capabilities, research areas and activities, and funding. There are currently over thirty people established at the center, along with researchers from other UW departments, industry, and other affiliated institutions who regularly visit the center to participate in various research activities. We hold monthly research seminars during the academic year as well as hosting a distinguished guest lecture series featuring visiting experts in the areas of mitochondria and metabolism.
