SiN-EV meeting: Improving rigour and standardisation of extracellular vesicle clinical studies
10. 12. 2020, virtual Webex meeting
In the first part, international experts on extracellular vesicles will present their work: Kenneth W. Witwer, Gabriella Pocsfalvi, Alicia Llorente, Elena S. Martens-Uzunova, An Hendrix. In the second part, hands-on workshop on EV-TRACK database (https://evtrack.org/) will be organised, with a focus on how to submit your research and improve its impact and reach.
Workshop “Extracellular vesicles – mediators and biomarkers of pathology”
05. 12. 2019, University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Medicine, Institute of Biochemistry, Vrazov trg 2, Ljubljana
At this year’s workshop, we will first learn about the current opportunities and challenges in EV studies, focusing on rigor and standardization of EV research and on novel discoveries that will help realize the full potential of EVs as biomarkers and modulators of health and disease (session 1). We will later hear more about the contributions of Slovenian researchers and clinicians in uncovering the role of EVs in pathogenicity (session 2) and as biomarkers of pathology (session 3). The stimulating atmosphere will hopefully promote new collaborations and research findings.
Workshop “Extracellular vesicles – a novel source of disease biomarkers”
07. 12. 2017, University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Medicine, Institute of Biochemistry, Vrazov trg 2, Ljubljana
At the workshop, Slovenian research groups and three foreign lecturers will present their work on extracellular vesicles. This year’s symposium will focus on methods for isolating vesicles from body fluids and for evaluating their concentration, size, and microRNA cargo. We will present how these analyses of extracellular vesicles could be used as new biomarkers for various diseases.
Workshop “Zunajcelični vezikli – vloga v patogenezi in klinični potencial”
16. 12. 2016, Univerza v Ljubljani, Medicinska fakulteta, Inštitut za biokemijo, Vrazov trg 2, Ljubljana
At the workshop, numerous Slovenian research groups will present their work on extracellular vesicles. If you are interested in this field or would like to include the study of extracellular vesicles in your future work (basic or more clinically oriented), the symposium will introduce the existing methodologies for the study of extracellular vesicles (with an emphasis on techniques introduced in Slovenian laboratories), the applicability of extracellular vesicles in diagnosis and therapy and their role in different disease models (HIV-1 pathogenesis, type 1 diabetes, cancer).
