The field of extracellular vesicles is growing rapidly in the UK. There are enough of us working on EVs to form a UK extracellular interest group.

This would allow us to share ideas and expertise, have regular meetings, and drink beer.

If you are interested in getting more information about upcoming UKEV meetings then please join our mailing list by emailing with your contact details. You can also find details in our forum.
