Dear colleague,

This message is to let you know that we are organizing the third edition of the workshop dedicated to cardiolipin, the signature lipid of mitochondria, in Martina Franca (Italy), October 1-2, 2017.

Martina Franca is a small town in south Italy, not far from Bari, in the country of trulli. Barocco style and beautiful farms characterize the town and its charming surroundings.

The meeting is in its early preparation stages and we would like to ask you whether you would agree to give a plenary lecture.

One major problem is the difficulty to obtain funding for this kind of ad hoc meeting. For the previous meetings in Bari (2013) and Florence (2015), all speakers agreed to pay their own travel expenses. The situation may be the same for next year’s workshop, although efforts will be made to obtain at least some kind of financial support for the invited speakers.

Let me know at a suitable time whether you would be interested to attend the workshop and present your data.

The two-day-workshop will offer the opportunity to discuss various aspects of basic cardiolipin functions in biomembranes of prokaryotes and animal cells. At the same time, the availability of new pharmacological tools and connections between cardiolipin research and human physiology, in particular cardiac physiology will be highlighted.

As in previous workshop, in parallel with the scientific sessions the families of boys affected by Barth Syndrome will meet and discuss various aspects of the family management of the disease (Secondo incontro delle famiglie Barth Italia, 30 Settembre 2017).

We trust that you will also help us advertise the meeting and encourage the participation of young collaborators.

We have no doubt that your expertise and knowledge in this field will be of great value for the cardiolipin workshop and we look forward very much to your positive response.

Best regards,

Angela Corcelli, Peter Buetikofer and Michael Schlame
