Extracellular vesicles (EVs), including both microvesicles and exosomes, represent an important mechanism for cellular communication, yet our understanding of biosynthesis, detection, and delivery of EVs is just starting to emerge. The mission of the Beckman Institute EVIT Working Group is to bring together our university community focused on the investigation of EVs in the context of both disease and health.
Our goal is to introduce innovation into the traditional workflow of isolating and characterizing EVs, which requires synergistic efforts from faculty in multiple disciplines. This workshop will provide the opportunity to learn more about EVs while becoming acquainted with innovative research currently underway at the University of Illinois. The lunch will provide an informal venue for exploring collaborative efforts with colleagues. All faculty, staff, postdoctoral students, and graduate students are welcome to join us for this half-day workshop.
Registration deadline is Monday, April 15.
