The Extracellular RNA Communication Consortium has published 700+ research articles since its inception in 2013. Most of our work is in the fields of extracellular RNA and extracellular vesicle biology, but the ERCC has also supported work in related areas like cancer signaling, RNA structure, and the function of microRNAs inside the cell. Those articles are listed here in reverse chronological order. You can browse different article categories using the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
