Harnessing nanotechnology to unravel extracellular vesicle heterogeneity (2020)

This project aims to develop a suite of innovative nanotechnologies to study extracellular vesicles with unprecedented depth of analysis and single particle resolution. This project expects to generate new knowledge in the emerging field of extracellular vesicle (EV) biology, as well as cell biology, using advanced nanofabrication and nanoscopic fluid flows to advance understanding of EV heterogeneity and how phenotypic variations affect their role in cellular processes. Expected outcomes include a universal technology platform to study extracellular vesicles and other bioparticles, with potential to deliver valuable intellectual property of commercial interest and economic benefit through technological advancements.
