In the framework of the project ITAT1036-EXOTHERA, funded by the programme Interreg VA 2014-2020 Italy-Austria, Elettra organized a mini-workshop on "Extracellular Vesicles: from biophysical properties to therapeutic applications". The workshop was held in the Meeting Room, Padriciano Campus of Area Science Park in the morning of 11th April 2019.
The mini-workshop represented the opportunity to share the results of the project, to gather together the local community working on Extracellular Vesicles field and to be acquainted with state-of-the-art EVs' isolation, characterization and applications, thanks to the participation as invited speakers of three distinguished experts on the EV field: dr. Lucio Barile from Cardiocentro Ticino, dr. Lucia Paolini from Universit√† degli Studi di Brescia and dr. Mateja Mancek-Keber from Slovenian National Institute of Chemistry. The workshop has been attended by an audience of more than 70 people coming from research institutes, companies and Universities of Trieste, Udine, Lubiana, Nova Gorica, Rijeka, Salzburg, Padova and Roma, that actively participated to the seminar contributions.

The speakers dissected different aspects related to the possible therapeutic applications of Extracellular Vesicles: from their biophysical properties to their uptake dynamics, from their role in inflammatory and immune response to their isolation in GMP conditions, from their implications in cardiovascular diseases to those in oncological frameworks.
