News and Announcements
Keerthie Dissanayake has published his second paper about his work with extracellular vesicles in Journal of Molecular Medicine – ‘Oviduct as a sensor of embryo quality: deciphering the extracellular vesicle (EV) – mediated embryo-maternal dialogue‘.
Mohammad Mehedi Hasan has published a second paper about his work with pre-ovulatory follicules in International Journal of Molecular Sciences – ‘Cellular, Extracellular and Extracellular Vesicular miRNA Profiles of Pre-Ovulatory Follicles Indicate Signaling Disturbances in Polycystic Ovaries‘
We have launched the EV Winter School 2020 “Basics to work with Extracellular Vesicles”.
This time the majority of the study happens in a Zoom environment and therefore participation is numerous.
We are pleased to invite you to a two-day symposium
EXTRACELLULAR VESICLES IN PATHOPHYSIOLOGY | New advances in the development of diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in health and disease
that will take place on December 3-4, 2020
as and hybrid event – in a VIRTUAL room and in room 1020 at CHEMICUM, Tartu, Estonia.
The third symposium of TransGeno is aimed to gather lecturers and experts from different EV related research fields to illustrate different methods of cell-cell communication and its effects on cellular function as well as the role that they can play in the diagnosis and therapies of patients. TransGeno ERA Chair has set an objective to host symposiums to bring prominent experts in the field to exchange the most recent knowledge in this growing field and advance research cooperation with the University of Tartu.
The symposium will feature the following sessions:
- – Characterization of EVs
- – EVs in diagnostics and therapeutics
- – EVs in cancer
For more information about lectures, topics and for registering please visit the symposium’s website http://www.transgeno2020.ut.ee
that will take place in a hybrid format from
November 30th until December 2nd, 2020 in Tartu, Estonia.
In view of the ongoing health crisis, the event will run in a hybrid format, comprising of smaller onsite lectures/workshops for those participants who at the time can travel without the need to self-quarantine, and virtual lectures/workshops for those who cannot attend in person. Should any new and further restrictions make the onsite meeting impossible, the virtual meeting will proceed as planned.
Participation is free of charge but an application is required.
To apply, please send your CV and motivation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 9th of November.

“What did you tell your mother? Communication between the embryo and the mother”
One of the most significant fields of Alireza’s research is intracellular communication, more specifically studying the early interactions between the cells of the maternal tract and embryo, that allow the mother to identify the embryo as a non-threat and accept it. If you want to find out what were your first “words” to your mother as an embryo to convince her that you are not a hazardous intruder, come and listen to Alireza’s presentation at the Researchers’ Night.
We are happy to announce about the new paper published in TransGeno. Qurat Ul Ain Reshi‘s research article
has published in the Journal of Cell Communication and Signaling.
We are glad to announce that Mohammad Mehedi Hasan‘s paper
has been published in MDPI International Journal of Molecular Sciences –
We have a new paper published by Getnet Balcha Midekessa
