ISEV2016 Education Day

Pre-Meeting Education Day

3rd May, 2016

The Pre-meeting Education Day is a successful tradition of the annual ISEV meetings. Focusing on particular topics within the extracellular vesicle field, select experts provide deep insight into certain basic aspects of extracellular vesicles. These educational presentations collectively illuminate burning questions and provide a comprehensive insight into the topic.

Encouraged by the very positive feedback from previous years, ISEV2016 for the first time provides two simultaneous Education Day programs:

(1) Novel developments of isolation and characterization of extracellular vesicles
(2) Extracellular vesicle therapeutics

Education Day programs provide unique learning opportunities in the rapidly emerging field of extracellular vesicles. They provide solid background information for attendees of ISEV2016 before visiting the Annual Meeting’s symposium and poster sessions.
