News and Announcements
We have a new paper published by Getnet Balcha Midekessa in ACS Omega – Zeta Potential of Extracellular Vesicles: Toward Understanding the Attributes that Determine Colloidal Stability
Given the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on events around the world, it has become clear to us that we will not be able to hold the Symposium and the Summer School on Extracellular Vesicles this June, as we hoped when postponed the date. Nevertheless, we are still set to hold these events at a later date, most likely in the last week of November/ beginning of December 2020. Hopefully by then the public-health crisis, as well as limitations to global travel, have eased.
The University of Tartu decided to support ten experimental development projects, including prof. Alireza Fazeli project – Validation of Concepteasy index in different clinical settings.
As the situation with the coronavirus pandemic is still very serious and it is uncertain whether the situation would get much better by the time we have scheduled our symposium and researcher’s school, the organizers suggest postponing the events for a month. It is possible that even June will be too soon to have gatherings but we are already seeing first good signs around Europe so let’s hope for the best.
Please stay safe and let us hope to meet in June.

We are glad to announce that a new paper has published by Keerthie Dissanayake and TransGeno members in the journal Theriogenology – Individually cultured bovine embryos produce extracellular vesicles that have the potential to be used as non-invasive embryo quality markers.
New collaboration project -Monitoring the size and zeta potential af EVs by fluorescence nanoparticle tracking- get started with our partner Particle Metrix GmbH today. With this project, the application of fluorescent dye for the detection of nanoparticles using a nanoparticle tracking analyzer (NTA) produced by Particle Metrix GmbH is going to be optimized. In addition, we are investigating the potential application of different nanoparticle purification methodology and the use of Fluorescent Nanoparticle NTA.
The project is funded by Particle Metrix GmbH.
