This 1-day ISEV workshop will review the most recent advances in specific organ- or cell-targeting mediated by EVs. Speakers will present on selecting or engineering EVs capable of specific delivery of cargo molecules to cells. Cutting–edge findings in the area of research of protein or RNA loading and ligand display on EV to inhibit cancer or to fight other diseases will also be presented. Overview presentations from several speakers will be followed byround table discussion of the speakers and other experts. ISEV members will join us using Zoom and will be allowed to ask questions in advance.
