Welcome to the official site of the Czech Society for Extracellular Vesicles!
WHAT ARE EXTRACELLULAR VESICLES?
Extracellular vesicles (EV) are tiny, membrane-enclosed structures actively secreted by cells across diverse biological contexts to transfer proteins, lipids, and genetic material between cells. They come in types like exosomes and microvesicles, playing a vital role in communication within the body. EV have gained considerable attention in various fields of research, including cell biology, cancer research, immunology, and regenerative medicine, due to their role in cell communication, disease progression, and therapeutic potential. Researchers are exploring their use as biomarkers for various diseases and as potential delivery vehicles for therapeutic molecules.
WHO ARE WE?
CzeSEV is a network of scientists working in the field of exosomes, microvesicles and other cell-derived vesicles of both eukaryotic and prokaryotic origin.
CzeSEV unites senior researchers, early-career scientists, students, and industry professionals throughout the Czech Republic. Our goal is to facilitate connections, foster collaboration, and build bridges within the EV research community.
We provide a robust platform for sharing experiences and knowledge related to extracellular vesicles. Our community thrives on the exchange of ideas, experiences, and discoveries.
International Society for Extracellular Vesicles Partners
As proud members of ISEV, we are contributing to the ISEV mission of advancing EV research for better understanding of EV biology and their use in clinics. We advocate for EVs by endorsing the EV topic during our lectures as well as by promoting the ISEV standards for EV research.
CzeSEV was founded in August 2023, and we aim to gain official association status in 2024, marking a significant milestone in our journey.
Fueled by Enthusiasm:
CzeSEV is so far a very small organization, without any apparatus and lives only through enthusiasm and activity of its few members.
Join us on this exciting expedition into the world of extracellular vesicles, where questions are explored, discoveries are made, and EVs unveil their mysteries!
