MEET fellows launched a crowdfunding campaign on kapipal website for collecting money in order

to help the “International Mito-Patients Network” (, to develop a standard

therapy for dealing with muscular pain in mitochondrial diseases. The campaign objective is simple:

raising awareness about mitochondrial diseases and raising money to help IMP network to develop

a standard therapy for dealing with muscular pain in mitochondrial diseases. To launch this

campaign, fellows did a simple equation: mitochondria = energy = running, dancing, climbing,

biking. Therefore, as young and motivated researchers involved in the mitochondrial field they  run,

dance, climb and bike to raise money. Indeed, fellows believe that participating to sport events is a

very good way to highlight the importance and the power of mitochondria and thus the importance

of helping people that are lacking healthy ones.


Mitochondrial patients worldwide, as represented by International Mito Patients, benefit from a

good network between patients, researchers, clinicians and caretakers. And this is also valid the

other way around: researchers, clinicians and caretakers benefit from a dialogue with patients. This

is the main reason for IMP to work closely together with the MEET Project.

IMP Mission is to increase the quality of life for people with mitochondrial diseases by facilitating

cross-border cooperation and collaboration among national patients' organizations. So, it is for this

reason that MEET Consortium and MEET fellows will collect money for IMP, to underly once

again the importance of collaborating among researchers, patients and clinicians, to fight



All the fellows will run the Copenhagen Half Marathon on September 18th 2016. A growing number of people willing to run for the cause are joining us!
