Acknowledgements to all applicants

On behalf of the YoungMito meeting committee, I would like to thank all applicants submitted to their abstracts for poster presentations. We had extremely hard time to pick up short talk presenters and travel scholarship awardees. We sincerely apologize for not being able to take all candidates owing to time and budget limitations. Poster sessions are definitely important factors for International YoungMito 2018 meeting. We hope that your poster presentations facilitate active communication and new collaborations among meeting participants.
