This year’s SiN-EV meeting: “Extracellular vesicles: From fundamental research to clinical application” took place on the 20th of June 2022. It was attended by approximately 70 researchers and clinicians from 23 institutions in Slovenia and all neighbouring countries. The lectures were presented by two distinguished international lecturers, Edit Buzás and Wolfgang Holnthoner, and 10 local presenters. Interesting lectures also enabled a lively discussion.
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.
SiN-EV annual meeting will be held in person in Ljubljana on Monday, June 20th 2022.
Two distinguished lecturers already confirmed their attendance: – Prof. Edit Buzás (Semmelweis University, Hungary), one of the leading researchers in the EV field and the presumed president of the International Society for EVs, ISEV, and the president of the Hungarian Society for EVs – Wolfgang Holnthoner (Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Traumatology; Austria), president of the Austrian Society for EVs, ASEV
There will also be ample opportunities for members of SiN-EV to present their research. More information to follow.
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.
This week, #EVCLub is a collaboration with the Slovenian EV Network (SiN-EV): Mateja Manček Keber presents “Synergy between 15-lipoxygenase and secreted PLA2 promotes inflammation by formation of TLR4 agonists from EVs” https://www.pnas.org/content/117/41/25679.
The Meeting will be accompanied by an Education Day, planned to educate new researchers and to assist with updating those already working in this field on topics of: EV preparation and characterization; EV biogenesis, targeting, uptake; EV application as biomarkers and therapeutics; and Advances and trends in EVs. Education Day will take place on Wednesday 25th May 2022 in the same venue as the main conference. ISEV2022 Conference Attendees can add Education Day at the registration, there is also a possibility to attend the Education Day only.
Traditionally, Socratic lectures feature excellent science donated by top experts in the field to the students, and promote work of young researchers.
This year, the plenary lecture will be given by prof. Antonella Bongiovanni from Palermo, Italy. The title of her lecture is “Green bioparticles for cross-kingdom communication: a drug delivery platform designed by nature”. Plenary lecture will be followed by 7 parallel scientific sections. After the parallel sections, a special section where science meets art will be presented.
Please see the programme of the symposium at the homepage of the Laboratory of Clinical Biophysics www.lkbf.si.
Posters will be available at the site of the Laboratory of Clinical Biophysics. You can still submit a poster. Also, contributions to the Proceedings (Invited lectures, Scientific contributions and Reflections) are welcomed until the end of 2021.
