Here you will find links to online seminars, journal clubs, and classes on exRNA and extracellular vesicle research.

We no longer track individual seminars here –– we could not keep up! Each series announces upcoming events on Twitter and via email subscription.

Please contact info@exRNA.org if you have an online educational resource you would like to list here.

ERCC2 Youtube Channel

Classes

Basics of Extracellular Vesicles course logo

Basics of Extracellular Vesicles

Instructor: Cecilia Lasser

Presented by Coursera and the UC Irvine Division of Continuing Education, this course aims to provide basic knowledge about extracellular vesicles (EVs), including exosomes, microvesicles, microparticles, ectosomes, oncosomes, prostasomes, and many others. It covers areas such as EV history, nomenclature, biogenesis, and EV cargo, as well as release and uptake mechanisms, collection and processing prior to isolation, isolation methods, and characterization and quantification techniques.

Extracellular Vesicles in Health and Disease course logo

Extracellular Vesicles in Health and Disease

Instructor: Carolina Soekmadji

Presented by Coursera and the UC Irvine Division of Continuing Education, this course aims to provide current understanding about extracellular vesicles (EVs) and their role in health and disease. EVs are known to be involved in cell-to-cell communication. Apart from maintaining normal cell physiology, EVs deliver messages that can drive or influence the progression of a disease. This course discusses recent advances in understanding their function in both these areas.
