APS Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology



Exosomes in the Central Nervous System: Bursting the Bubble

Featured Topic — Friday, April 30, 2021 — 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM — Virtual Session, Room APS-13
Neural Control and Autonomic Regulation Section — Chair: Eric Lazartigues — Co-Chair: Ji Bihl

This FT will present new evidence about the pathologic and therapeutic roles of exosomes within the central nervous system. In addition, it will address the question about the active role of exosomes: are they a garbage disposal mechanism or are they involved in signaling. Finally, can they be manipulated to deliver therapies to the CNS?This FT will present new evidence about the pathologic and therapeutic roles of exosomes within the central nervous system.
