Successful RRNEV research seminar on EV isolation and characterization


Earlier this week, RRNEV hosted a half-day research seminar on the topic "Isolation and characterization of Extracellular Vesicles" at the Norwegian Radium Hospital. This was the sixth combined half-day scientific seminar followed by workshop on RRNEV cooperative projects.We were honored to be visited by both An Hendrix (Ghent University, Belgium) and Johanna Höög (University of Gothenburg, Sweden) who both held outstanding talks within the emerging field of EV methodology!

MINI-INFO ABOUT THE INVITED SPEAKERS:

 

An Hendrix:

An Hendrix, Phd, is an experienced scientist that has been involved in various studies on extracellular vesicles. She currently works at the Department of Radiation oncology and experimental cancer research at Ghent University, Belgium. Her research focuses on isolation, characterization and functional methods of extracellular vesicles in cancer research as well as their role in therapy. She has also been heavily involved in EV communities such as ME-HaD and ISEV with contributions in several position papers.

 

Johanna Höög:

Johanna Höög, PhD, is a structural cell biologist studying the diversity and detailed 3D architecture of extracellular vesicles and the cellular cytoskeleton. She currently works as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden, and made her PhD in Cell Biology at the European Molecular Biology Laboratories (Heidelberg, Germany) with the thesis: "The 3D Architecture of Interphase Microtubule Cytoskeleton and Functions of Microtubule Plus End Tracking Proteins in Fission Yeast". She has conducted postdoctoral work at several top-end labs in Germany, USA, UK and Sweden, including Jan Lötvall’s lab in Gothenburg, and received major scientific grants and won several prizes as a result of her outstanding work.
