CNR-EV-NET: Joining forces in the study of Extracellular Vesicles

CNR-EV-NET: Joining forces in the study of Extracellular Vesicles


 A hybrid, online and face-to face event was organized at the central CNR headquarter (Aula Marconi), Piazzale Aldo Moro 7, Roma. 

The scientific community of the National Research Council (CNR) organized a day dedicated to Extracellular Vesicles (EVs), a scientific field that crosses different departments and involves multiple strategic areas, with the aim of stimulating discussion and consolidate skills accumulated over the years within the CNR laboratories. The aim was to create an interdepartmental network for the study and application of Extracellular Vesicles within CNR, named CNR-EV-NET. This was also the title of the workshop 'CNR-EV-NET: Joining forces in the study of Extracellular Vesicles' held in Rome, at the CNR headquarter (Aula Marconi) on April 28, with the hybrid participation both in person and online streaming.

The proponents of CNR-EV-NET are researchers from six institutes of four CNR departments: Antonella Bongiovanni of the Institute for Biomedical Research and Innovation (Cnr- Irib, DSB); Marcella Chiari and Marina Cretich of the "Giulio Natta" Institute of Chemical Sciences and Technologies (Cnr-Scitec, DSCTM); Mauro Manno of the Institute of Biophysics (Cnr-Ibf, DSFTM); Gabriella Pocsfalvi of the Institute of Biosciences and Bioresources (Cnr-IBBR, DISBA); Francesco Valle and Marco Brucale of the Institute for the study of nanostructured materials (Cnr-ISMN, DSCTM); Claudia Verderio of the Institute of Neuroscience (Cnr-IN, DSB).

In addition to the stimulating an interactive discussion during the event, the proposing group aspires to the establishment of a CNR network of researchers active on the extracellular vesicles research field. Two experts, Edit Buzas (president of the international society of extracellular vesicles - ISEV) and Benedetta Bussolati (president of the Italian society for extracellular vesicles - EVIta), gave talk during the workshop. They underlined the importance of the basic research on EVs in order to exploit their potential applications in various applied research fields including precision medicine. The afternoon session was dedicated to discussions with the community operating in the field by animating a discussion aimed at identifying the key elements to be represented in the founding acts of the interdepartmental network.

From EVs-MS lab Gabriella Pocsfalvi was present et the workshop. She introduced Edit Buzas to the audience.
