a Letter from the chairs

Dear Colleagues and Friends of ISEV,  

We are delighted to invite you all from every single place in the world to ISEV2023, the annual meeting of the largest extracellular vesicle (EV) society, to advance the frontiers of EV research. The conference will take place in Seattle (USA), on May 17-21st 2023. Seattle is a dynamic, vibrating city, surrounded by unmatched natural beauty. The conference will cover all aspects of EV research from basic to clinical, from diagnostic to therapeutic. This meeting is the focal point for the global EV research community, and we look forward to seeing you there. 

The meeting will start with an Education Day covering the most crucial aspects of EV research. New elements in the program include talks covering practical tips and tricks, as well as rigor and standardization efforts of EV research. 

The main ISEV Annual Meeting runs over 4 days. We have incorporated new ideas/ features to answer requests and to adjust to the needs of the growing community. 

4 exciting Plenary Speakers are lined up, followed by featured abstracts:

      Monica Driscoll, PhD, Rutgers University, USA, "Exophers in Neurodegenerative Diseases and Brain Aging”

      Jacky Goetz, PhD, INSERM, France, "In-vivo Imaging of EVs in Cancer"

      Ivan Poon, PhD, La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science, Australia, "Apoptosis and EVs"

      Eva Rohde, MD, University Hospital Salzburg, Austria, "Therapeutics Using Human Mesenchymal Stromal Cells" 

High quality abstracts are the basis of our Oral Symposia. This year, each symposium will be introduced by an expert in the field who gives an overview towards the symposium topic. To increase the opportunities for junior scientists, we will have oral with posters sessions and “Meet the professor lunches”.

ISEV2023 features extra sessions to discuss our Rigor and Standardization initiatives.

The Student Network of EVs (SNEV) is also bringing early career researchers closer together with sessions on career development as well as a host of networking opportunities. 

See you in Seattle,
