Vesicles: from Biology to Biomedical Applications
EMBL ADVANCED COURSE
EMBL Heidelberg, Germany
19 - 24 Sep 2016
A rapidly increasing number of researchers aim to purify and identify
exosomes and many methodologies to isolate and analyse these vesicles
are available and have been implemented. This course will cover the
basics including purification, characterisation and understanding their
role in biomedical applications.
This course is intended for PhD and Postdoctoral students who are
interested in learning how to work with extracellular vesicles and know
more about their biomedical applications.
Exosome purification (continuous and discontinuous density gradient
ultracentrifugation, ultrafiltration techniques, bead-capture and
Exosome characterisation (Immunoblot and electron microscopy,
quantitative and qualitative analysis by flow cytometry, structural and
mechanical characterisation by atomic force microscopy, nanoparticle
Exosome composition (lipidomics, proteomics, transcriptomics)
Exosome biogenesis and function (molecular players for exosome
biogenesis, exosomes as diagnostics and/or therapeutics in
In this course we intend to make PhD students and post-doctoral
researchers familiar with good-practice-guidelines and methods for
purification and identification of exosomes, with practical sessions

Aims and Topics
Today, one of the biggest challenges for biologists is the ability to
understand and analyze the genome expressed in a given cell type in the
tissue environment, which means you can specifically isolate these
cells and work on very small quantities of biological material.
The aim of the congress is to bring together internationally renowned
experts in the field and offer an overview of the present knowledge for
obtaining high quality molecules and future developments in "omic"
tools (DNA, RNA and protein) for genome analysis and its expression at
the cell level.
The latest advances in technology in the field will be introduced (flow
cytometry, laser capture microdissection, NGS, digital PCR, WGA,
LC-MS/MS, RPLA, etc).
The symposium will be divided into four sessions introduced by keynote
lecturers, experts in their field :
1- Sampling methods (flow cytometry, laser capture
2- Microgrenomics and DNA
3- Microgenomics and RNA and small RNA
4- Microgrenomics and Proteins

21st World Congress on Advances in
Symposium on Molecular Medicine
October 6-8, 2016
***** Athens, Greece
interest and increasing support that our annual Congress on Advances in
Oncology and Symposium of Molecular Medicine has gained over the years,
motivates us to repeat this success this year in October 2016. Over the
last 20 years we have consistently welcomed a broad international
audience, which surpassed 500 participants in 2015.
The 21st World Congress on Advances in Oncology and the 19th
Symposium of Molecular Medicine will take place from 6-8 October,
The event will be held at the Metropolitan
Hotel ***** Conference Center in Athens, Greece.
The aim of our conferences is to keep participants up to date with the
latest scientific developments in Oncology and Molecular Medicine. Our
conferences constitute a unique venue for basic and clinical research
for the development of molecular diagnostics and cancer therapeutics.
Some of the many topics that will be discussed are:
- Biochemistry in Molecular Oncology
- Immunology in Molecular Oncology
- Experimental Carcinogenesis
- Tumor Microenvironment & Signaling
- Cancer Inflammation & Differentiation
- Cancer Therapeutics
- Molecular Medicine
- Molecular & Clinical Diagnostics
- Quantitative PCR & Next Generation
- Discovery and Validation of Biomarkers
- CTCs & Circulating
- Regulative small RNAS in Cancer
- … … and additional subjects relating to
Oncology and Molecular Medicine.
|In parallel to
the scientific symposium of 2016, an Industrial
Exhibition will take place, at which international
in the fields of Oncology and Molecular Medicine, will present their
latest technologies and services in clinical diagnostics. If you are
interested in joining the exhibition, please contact us at email@example.com
We look forward to your

six webinar series on PCR will be based on MIQE guidelines. MIQE,
Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative-Real Time PCR,
helps scientists to design and report reliable and reproducible qPCR
results. They help others to understand and replicate already conducted
experiments. In this webinar series we will discuss step by step
critical points which need to be taken into consideration in order to
acquire reliable data.
Topics will include:
