MOVE Symposium: A glimpse into the world of EVs research


The European National EV Societies (NEVS) made history with the inaugural MOVE Symposium in Malaga, Spain, from October 24 to 27, 2023. This groundbreaking event brought together researchers, scientists, and enthusiasts from across Europe to promote research and understanding of Extracellular Vesicles (EVs). The symposium aimed to foster Mobility for Vesicles research in Europe (MOVE) and encourage collaboration and communication between various European societies interested in this fascinating field.

Miriam Romano: A Notable Presence

Miriam Romano, a young Italian researcher from BOW, made a significant impact at the MOVE Symposium. She presented a poster titled “A Different Perspective on EV Surface Engineering: The Protein Corona ‘Variable'”. Her presentation explored the role of the protein corona in EV surface engineering. In recognition of her outstanding presentation, Miriam was awarded the MOVE Travel Grant by the Italian Society for Extracellular Vesicles (EVita). This grant will support her attendance at future EV-related conferences and symposia.

The MOVE Symposium: A Pinnacle of EV Research

The MOVE Symposium was organized to serve as a platform for experts and enthusiasts to share their insights, knowledge, and findings regarding Extracellular Vesicles. As EV research holds immense promise in various fields, including biology, medicine, and drug delivery, events like these play a pivotal role in advancing our understanding and application of EVs.

Through this event, NEVS successfully achieved its overarching aim of fostering communication between European societies with a vested interest in EV research. It was an opportunity for scientists to connect, share ideas, and collaborate on future projects, ultimately promoting the advancement of EV research in Europe and beyond.
