The role of mitochondria

In almost every type of cell in the human body, mitochondria can be found. These specialised organelles are essential to our survival, as they produce 90% of the energy needed for our cells to function.

We made this beautiful animation about a compound being developed by Khondrion: Sonlicromanol. The animation shows the damaging effects of Mitochondrial disease, while explaining how the compound works and what its effect is on the damaged mitochondria.

The universe

For the style and colouring of this animation, we were inspired by the universe – the cells representing the galaxies in space. The bright and warm colours used for the mitochondria in the animation – the stars in the galaxy – visualise the energy that these organelles produce.
