      None yet Im afraid…

      However, in my work I am trying to work out a way of getting small pieces of DNA into cells and then into mitochondria. If we can do this then the DNA will bind to the “bad” DNA in the mitochondria that makes the broken proteins. This will stop the mitochondria making bad proteins which will “cure” mitochondria that cant make enough energy for the cell to work properly.

      I hope this helps
