We are pleased to invite you to a one-day symposium “Extracellular Vesicles: Nano-Containers Full of Messages” that will take place on May 20th, 2019 in Chemistry building of University of Tartu (Ravila 14A, Tartu) in room 1020.
Some of the most exciting research currently undertaken by the ERA chair of Translational Genomics examines how our cells send messages to each other in tiny capsules called extracellular vesicles (EVs). Precious little is known about EVs given their infinitesimal size, but in recent years evidence has mounted that this cellular ‘postal service’ is essential for the body’s day-to-day functions and could even provide new ways to diagnose disease.
EV research is still in its infancy but is expanding fast thanks to the development of new techniques which are helping scientists to learn more about these tiny messengers than has previously been possible, such as what they’re made of and what kinds of messages they carry. We are therefore excited to announce the 2019 Extracellular Vesicle Symposium at the University of Tartu, where researchers from across the continent will have the chance to showcase and discuss their latest findings and explore how, together, we can unlock the secrets of our cellular postal service.
