A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting
Microvesiculation and disease, 2012, will bring together researchers in biomedicine to discuss the burgeoning field of microvesicles and exosomes. The specific emphasis will be the role they play in cancer, development and infectious and autoimmune disease, but will also look to new therapies targeting the microvesicle and exosome communication system.
- Autoimmune disease and microvesicles
- Infectious disease and microvesicles
- Genetics and microvesicles
- Cancer and microvesicles
Reviews by the speakers, based on their presentations at this major international meeting, will be published exclusively in Biochemical Society Transactions
(Volume 41, part 1).
