ASEMV2022 Annual Meeting






After a two-year hiatus from in-person meetings, I’m writing to invite you to ASEMV2022/AAEV2022, the annual meeting of the American Society for Exosomes and Microvesicles, and also of the newly-formed American Association for Extracellular Vesicles (AAEV). ASEMV2022/AAEV2022 is organized in support of a rational and non-dogmatic approach to research on secreted vesicles and related particles, as well as in support of the new journal EV, which aims to be the leading publication for high-impact papers of the highest technical quality in the exosome/EV field.

ASEMV2022/AAEV2022 will be held September 29-October 3, 2022 at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in beautiful Pacific Grove, California, USA. As with past ASEMV meetings, ASEMV2022/AAEV2022 is an international conference for the presentation of the latest advances on the biochemistry, cell biology, engineering, and biomedical applications of exosomes, other EVs, bacterial outer membrane vesicles, and non-vesicular extracellular particles. This year’s program consists of eight (8) plenary sessions, carefully curated to cover the depth and breadth of the field, in a format that values inclusion and diversity (

  1. Biochemistry & cell biology of exosome biogenesis, engineering, and uptake
  2. Exosome-based therapeutics & vaccines
  3. Exosome-based diagnostics
  4. Exosomes, microvesicles, and other EVs in viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections
  5. Cancer EVs in neoplasia and metastasis
  6. Exosome biology in neuronal signaling, drug addiction, & neurodegeneration
  7. EVs in development, differentiation, tissue homeostasis, immunity, and fertilization
  8. EVs in fibrosis & inflammation

All attendees who submit an abstract are expected to also present a poster, making our evening poster sessions (refreshments included) one of the best ways to get to know the field, meet your colleagues, find new opportunities for collaboration, and relax after a long day of science.

Participants are strongly encouraged to book their lodging & meals on-site at the Asilomar Conference Center, a beautiful, historic campus of guest rooms and conference facilities located within a sprawling state park of ocean beaches, coastal forest, and hiking trails. Staying together on the Asilomar campus allows all of us to share meals, breaks, evening sessions, and other organized and spontaneous activities, further enhancing those informal interactions that make in-person scientific meetings so rewarding.

In addition to its beautiful location and outstanding scientific program, ASEMV2022/AAEV2022 is by far the most economical exosome research conference, with registration fees of only $100 for students/post-docs, and $300 for senior scientists. Rates are higher for those staying off-site, so please sign up soon before all rooms are booked! In addition, rates will increase substantially as the meeting approaches, so again, please register for the meeting ASAP. We also welcome attendees’ families, and can arrange special rate options for those who want to stay longer to enjoy the many attractions of California’s central coast, including the historic towns of Monterey and Carmel and the unique beauty of Big Sur.

Thanks for your time and consideration, and we look forward to meeting you in California!

Best Wishes,

Stephen Gould, Director, ASEMV

Raghu Kalluri, President, AAEV

Formed in 2011, the ASEMV is a US-based yet international community of scientists who work on exosomes, other extracellular vesicles (EVs) (e.g. microvesicles, apoptotic bodies, virus-like particles, enveloped viruses, and bacterial outer membrane vesicles), and secreted large protein complexes (e.g. exomeres and supermeres).


  • ASEMV exists to promote the work of US and international exosome/EV scientists by providing a forum for scientific presentations and opportunities to gather, share their findings, and discuss the latest advances and controversies in the field.
  • ASEMV welcomes members from across the globe, and is particularly dedicated to supporting the career development of students, post-docs, and other junior scientists.
  • ASEMV embraces the call by the US National Institutes of Health to “enhance the participation of individuals from groups identified as underrepresented in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences” (
  • While we encompass the entire field, ASEMV acknowledges biochemistry and cell biology as the foundations of all biology and medicine, and is therefore a particular home for researchers investigating the molecular mechanisms that mediate the biogenesis, engineering, and intercellular signaling of exosomes and other EVs.
