SiN-EV meeting: “Extracellular vesicles: From fundamental research to clinical application”

Date: Monday, 20. 6. 2022, 09.00-15.20
Location: University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Medicine, Korytkova 2, Ljubljana

At this year’s meeting, two distinguished lecturers, Edit Buzás and Wolfgang Holnthoner, will present their research in the field of extracellular vesicles in the plenary session. Then we will hear from local researchers and clinicians about fundamental discoveries and methodology for EV isolation and characterisation (session 1) and about the role of extracellular vesicles in human disease (session 2). The stimulating atmosphere will hopefully promote new collaborations and research findings.

You can register for the meeting here: https://forms.gle/iJZiZNcpQ7mMj6C49. Registration is open until June 15th 2022.

MOVE European Mobility Fellowships

SiN-EV has joined the European initiative MOVE (MObility for Vesicles research in Europe), established to foster collaboration between the members of different European EV Societies and Networks. The current project of the initiative is MOVE European Mobility Fellowship, which enables short-term (1-3 months) visits of early-stage scientists – technicians, doctoral students, and young postdoctoral students – involved in the research of extracellular vesicles to other European laboratories.

More information about laboratories involved in the initiative and application process can be found at: https://www.ukev.org.uk/move-mobility-ev-europe/.
