The Laboratory of Extracellular Vesicles and Mass Spectrometry (EVs-MS) will run a seminar series on Extracellular Vesicles (EVs) every Wednesday at 12.00 p.m. at the Institute of Biosciences and Bioresources (IBBR-CNR), Naples, Italy.

The programme promotes the establishment of new and strengthening existing collaborations in the EV field in Campania region. This year’s seminars will give exciting insights into the biogenesis, physical characterization as well as the medical, nutraceutical and cosmeceutical potentials of EVs. Senior and junior researchers active in EV research field have been invited to give short talk (30 min) that will be followed by discussion section. The seminars are open to all.

The talks will be webcasted by GoToMeeting platform provided by VES4US H2020 FetOPEN project. Register in advance to secure your spot.
