Mitochondria Decreases Life Span of RBC and Contributes to Cold Induced Pain in Mouse Sickle Model

This post indexes a scientific oral presentation I gave at the 2024 American Society of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology conference

In this scientific oral presentation, shared at the annual ASPHO 2024 Conference, I discussed (on behalf of my colleagues at the Rivers lab) the impact of mitochondrial retention on RBC life span. I also looked at mtDNA, TLR9 and other relevant pathways linking them to cold induced red cell destruction. You can find the entire abstract here.
