Quantification and characterization of extracellular vesicles in biomedical research
Course offered to students on the PhD programme in
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are increasingly recognized as masters of intercellular communication with a relevant role in human health and disease. The course is intended to provide students with basic knowledge about EVs, their nomenclature, biogenesis, release and uptake mechanisms, and cargo. The course will focus on emerging approaches for EV quantification and characterization, including procedures for collection and processing of samples prior to EV isolation, different isolation methods, as well as quantification and characterization techniques. The course will also exploit the potential of using artificial vesicles in biomedical research.
