Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the 10th Conference of the International Coenzyme Q10 Association to be held under a hybrid format at Beiersdorf Auditorium, Hamburg, from 12 to 15 May 2022 (https://icqaproject.org/). We are looking forward to seeing you at this event. This Special Issue will publish selected papers based on the new discoveries presented during the meeting, and will include the insights and perspectives on:

  • Coenzyme Q in bioenergetics, including electron transport chain structure as well as mitochondrial ROS damage and signaling.
  • Biosynthesis and its defects in disease onset and progression.
  • Neurological effects of disrupting CoQ homeostasis. 
  • Skin response to CoQ supplementation.
  • Prooxidant vs. antioxidant functions of coenzyme Q.
  • Mitochondrial and non-mitochondrial CoQ in health- and lifespan.

We expect that this conference will present new and exciting developments on the role of coenzyme Q in health and disease, as well as new insights into its biosynthesis pathway. The Scientific Committee cordially welcomes you, and we look forward to your contribution.
