Workshop "Membranes and EVS" (3/24-25)

Export to Your Calendar 03/24/2018 to 03/25/2018

Johns Hopkins University

Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Contact: ISEV Meetings and Events

Important: Registration is now closed.


Goals and Scientific Program

The goal of the Workshop is to foster interactions of EV scientists with membrane biologists and engineers who may or may not have a current EV research program...and prepare one or more publications to move the field forward.


Session and Roundtable discussion themes are:

1) Fission and secretion

2) Uptake and fusion

3) Technologies to target EV membranes and membrane proteins

4) EV transfer: function and functional assays
