Join ISEV2023 co-chairs Uta Erdbrügger and Dolores Di Vizio, the International Organizing Committee, and the ISEV Board for the ISEV Annual Meeting 2023 to advance the frontiers of extracellular vesicle (EV) research. From cancer biology, immunology, neurology, kidney physiology and pathobiology, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease; to translation and therapeutics, this meeting is the focal point for the global EV research community, and we look forward to seeing you there!

Plenary Speakers

Monica Driscoll, PhD
Rutgers University, USA
"Exophers in Neurodegenerative Diseases and Brain Aging"
Dr. Driscoll is a leading expert in the field of aging and her group studies the basic biology of aging with a focus on molecular mechanisms of healthspan extension via genetic, chemical, and exercise interventions. Neuronal proteostasis and anti-neurodegeneration mechanisms are also major research interests, and the understanding of large vesicle aggregate and organelle extrusions in membrane-bound exophers is a central facet of that effort.

Jacky Goetz, PhD
INSERM, France

"In-vivo Imaging of EVs in Cancer"

Trained as cell biologist (Ph.D. UBC Vancouver), my group developed intravital correlative microscopy for tracking metastasis in zebrafish and mouse models of (Karreman et al. JCS, 2016; Karreman et al., TCB, 2016; Follain et al. JCS 2016). My group is also focused on dissecting the biomechanics of the metastasis cascade. We recently identified the contribution of hemodynamic forces to tumor cell arrest and extravasation preceding metastasis formation (Follain et al. Developmental Cell, 2018; Osmani et al. Cell Reports, 2019, Follain-Osmani et al. Sci Rep, 2021). These studies demonstrate that fluid & cell mechanics are key regulators of tumor metastasis (reviewed in Goetz, Science, 2018; Follain et al., Nature Reviews Cancer, 2020; Gensbittel et al. Dev Cell 2021).  My group is also interested in elucidating the mechanisms driving the establishment of pre-metastatic niches in vivo. We have recently demonstrated that Ral1 controls biogenesis and secretion of tumor extracellular vesicles (Hyenne et al. JCB 2015) and demonstrated that the zebrafish embryo can be used for tracking, at high spatio-temporal resolution, the fate and function of extracellular vesicles in vivo (Hyenne et al. Dev Cell, 2019; Verweij et al. Dev Cell, 2019; Verweij et al. TCB, 2019; Verweij et al. Nat Meth, 2021). We recently unraveled an important role for RalGTPases and the adhesive potential of Extracellular Vesicles in priming metastatic niches during breast cancer progression (Ghoroghi et al. eLife, 2021). My team recently obtained the “Ligue contre le Cancer” label for 5 years in addition to several prizes.

Ivan Poon, PhD
La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science, Australia

"Apoptosis and EVs"
Dr. Poon is a leading expert in apoptotic cell disassembly and clearance and his group studies how and why dying cells fragment into apoptotic bodies during apoptosis. Their research has defined key aspects in the molecular machinery that regulate this disassembly process during cell death, the importance of this process in disease settings, and identified novel drugs that target this process.


Eva Rohde, MD
University Hospital Salzburg, Austria

"Therapeutics Using Human Mesenchymal Stromal Cells"
Dr. Rohde is a leading expert in stem cell- and extracellular vesicle-based therapeutics. Her research focuses on the application of stem cell-based therapies with a special emphasis on their extracellular vesicles. She actively contributes to a global network of academic and industrial partners who share the goal of the clinical development and assessment of extracellular vesicle-based therapies in diseases with a high unmet need.
