MOOC course “Basics of Extracellular Vesicles” announced!


Yesterday, Cecilia Lässer posted in the Exosomes, microvesicles and other secreted vesicles group on Facebook:

"We are excited to announce that ISEV has produced an educational MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) for students and beginners in the field of extracellular vesicles. This MOOC, “Basics of Extracellular Vesicles”, can be accessed via the platform “Coursera” at

Twenty of the leading researchers in the field of extracellular vesicles, from all around the world, have shared their recorded lectures. This course is divided into five modules that aim to provide the basic knowledge about extracellular vesicles such as their biogenesis, cargo and uptake mechanisms, as well as providing guidelines for the collection and processing of body fluids prior to isolation of EVs. Furthermore, the concepts, benefits and limitations of several isolation methods and characterisation techniques will be covered.

The course was produced in collaboration with University of California Irvine (USA), University of Gothenburg (Sweden) and Pohang University of Science and Technology (South Korea).

We hope that you will find this course stimulating and educational and that you will enjoy it!"
