FSEV-AFC Hands-on Workshop 2024
The first HANDS-ON WORKSHOP: “Single Extracellular Vesicles analysis” is jointly organized by the French Society of Extracellular Vesicles (FSEV)and the French Association of Cytometry (AFC) and will take place from February 7 to 9, 2024 at FIAP Jean Monnet,, in Paris
Extracellular vesicles are gaining increasing attention from researchers and clinicians due to their pivotal roles in various physiological and pathological processes. They influence the progression and treatment responses of several diseases, including cancers. Additionally, extracellular vesicles hold promise as disease biomarkers, offering non-invasive diagnostic potential. The analysis of single extracellular vesicles is now emerging as the main challenge in the field of extracellular vesicles.
This workshop will cover the basic and advanced technology dedicated to single extracellular vesicles analysis and will consist of lectures by international experts in the field and hands-on pratical modules animated by the following companies: Abbelight, Agilent, BD, Beckman Coulter, Cytek Biosciences, Excilone & Particle Metrix, IZON, Miltenyi, Myriade and NanoFCM.
The workshop will be organized as follow over 3 days:
- An afternoon dedicated to an overview of the fundamental and technological challenges in the study of extracellular vesicles by academic experts.
- A full day with practical sessions divided into 4 slots of 2 hours where each company will allow groups of 6 people to manipulate directly their device and to test the reference material of the company and batches of calibrated vesicles.
- A Morning dedicated to the analysis and the discussion of the results on each technology.
Detailed desciptions of modules and faculty bios will be available on this site.
Please note, places are limited, register quickly!!!
