The intercellular communication by extracellular vesicles: a specialized and diversified network in physiological and pathological conditions
|Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are nowadays recognized as fundamental elements in intercellular communication. They are a heterogeneous population of membrane-bounded vesicles that play important roles not only in cellular communication but also in preventing or promoting certain diseases, including infectious diseases, neurological disorders, metabolic alterations, and cancer. Techniques and innovative approaches for EVs isolation and characterization have been highlighted in this special event on EXTRACELLULAR VESICLES: THE NEW ERA OF THE INTERCELLULAR COMMUNICATION, organized by the Sapienza Dept of Biology and Biotechnology C.Darwin (Luciana Dini and Stefano Tacconi) in collaboration with EVITA (Annalisa Redeghieri), and divided in two symposia. Considering the extreme heterogeneity of the EVs and the difficulty of establishing standard analytical procedures, in the first symposium we will examine the new innovation research for a single and comprehensive vesicle analysis with four lectures on advanced techniques. The second symposium will be focused on the development and on the applications of innovative technologies for the study of extracellular vesicles. The event will be an opportunity to meet and discuss the state of the art and the prospects of technological research in the Extracellular Vesicles field.
