ExoFest 2018 - the first Bay Area Exosome Research Festival

ExoFest™ 2018 is a one-day meeting to bring together scientists with an interest in exosome and extracellular vesicle (EV) research and will showcase some of the most outstanding exosome research in the Bay Area. This symposium, co-organized by System Biosciences (SBI) and Dr. Lynn Pulliam, VA Medical Center, UCSF, will be kicked off by Keynote Speaker, Dr. Randy Schekman, the 2013 Nobel Prize winner for vesicular transport. Following the keynote talk will be several short research talk sessions, a poster session, and a panel discussion on translational research and the diagnostic value of exosomes. The event will conclude with a networking reception during which prizes for best talk and poster will be awarded.
