The International Society for Extracellular Vesicles is the leading professional society for researchers and scientists involved in the study of microvesicles and exosomes.  With nearly 1,000 members, ISEV continues to be the leader in advancing the study of extracellular vesicles.  Founded in 2012 in Sweden, ISEV has since moved its Headquarters to the United States.  Through its programs and services, ISEV provides essential training and research opportunities for those involved in exosome and microvesicle research.  


Mission Statement: Advancing extracellular vesicle research globally. 

Vision: Our vision is to be the leading advocate and guide of extracellular vesicle research and to advance the understanding of extracellular vesicle biology.


What Does ISEV Do? 

Publications - The Journal of Extracellular Vesicles is an open access journal, that serves as a forum for the exchange of data, ideas and information from all areas pertaining to the chemistry, biology and/or applications of extracellular vesicles, including microvesicles, exosomes, ectosomes, apoptotic bodies and other extracellular vesicles.

Events - The ISEV Annual Meeting draws nearly 1,000 attendees, including top researchers in the field discussing the latest in extracellular vesicles, exosomes, and microvesicles. 

ISEV also regularly holds regional workshops, providing local opportunities for to expand the field of extracellular vesicles, microvesicle, and exosome research.  For more information on our events, please view our event calendar

Education - In addition to our in-person events, ISEV has developed a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) through Coursera. This course aims to provide the basic knowledge about extracellular vesicles (EV) a generic term including exosomes, microvesicles, microparticles, ectosomes, oncosomes, prostasomes, and many others.
