Dr Pickett is researching the fundamental mechanisms behind the most common mitochondrial mutation. Known as the ‘powerhouse of the cell’, mitochondria are responsible for converting food energy into cellular energy. Not only will her research help clinicians to treat the huge range of diseases that result from this, it will also make variation within symptoms far easier to predict.
