Feedback from participants
- I would like to thank you and the Oroboros team for the amazing O2k - Workshop and meeting (Bioblast) in Innsbruck. It was a great opportunity to discuss and present my work. I hope see you soon in the next mitochondria meeting! Nivea Amoedo
- I would just like to echo all the sentiments and thank you for the invitation and hosting the wonderful mitochondrial conference that was Bioblast 2012! Great science, great venue, great people, and great fun. I look forward to MiPconference 2013 - Comparative Mitochondrial Physiology in Obergurgl. Robby Jacobs
- Thank you so much for a wonderful experience during my recent visit to Austria. It was an honor to participate in the workshop and share my views on Gentle Science as well as my ongoing research at the Bioblast Conference. The link to the 2-minute video can be found at http://youtu.be/9hgrvgAP934. Please share it with others (and post on the Gentle Science webpage) since many at the conference requested for their viewing and use. Wishing you and your family (and O2k family) a very merry Christmas and a Bioenergetic (:-)) new year. Best Wishes in the holiday season. Shilpa Iyer

- The project MiPMap was presented in the discussion on MitoGlobal (past-conference terminology).
- A distinction is to be made between the Crabtree effect and the Warburg effect.
- In the spirit of Gentle Science and Tempo giusto, your audience asks you to adhere to the limited time available for individual presentations, and to encourage the extended communication in stimulating discussions.
- Bioblast would like to encourage the senior scientists to:
- Think big and deep - with mitochondrial competence,
- Provocative, perhaps a blend of experimental/theoretical and published/unpublished,
- Across borderlines, beyond the limits of our present experimental evidence.
- Historical perspective that projects into the future.
- Start and end with a simple message that will stick to many minds in and beyond the audience - the message beyond your abstract.
- Don't be afraid of critical comments.
- Bioblast wants the junior scientists to:
- Focus on experimental results - with mitochondrial competence.
- Present data with a critical mind.
- Don't be afraid of challenging what may be merely dogmatic textbook knowledge.
- Start with a question and end with a clear message (or a clear question) - the message beyond your abstract.
- Don't be afraid of constructive comments.

Bioblast 2012 hosted by OROBOROS INSTRUMENTS
- The O2k-Team hopes that the Bioblast Conference will be an explicit statement on the value and high quality of cooperation between the OROBOROS MiPNet Reference Laboratories who contributed to the world-wide success of high-resolution respirometry. Your feedback is most valuable to us.
- OROBOROS and High-Resolution Respirometry
- OROBOROS MiPNet Reference Laboratories: As an appreciation of your cooperation, OROBOROS INSTRUMENTS invites a delegate of your research group to join the Bioblast Conference free of charge. According to our CSR-strategy, we stay away from ‘low-value advertisements’ to stimulate the flow of high-quality information. Our priorities focus on communication rather than diverting support away to Madison Avenue advertising. Any support by the participants is greatly appreciated.
