ASEMV Mission

The ASEMV mission is to advance the field of exosome and microvesicle research through education, communication, and collaboration. ASEMV meetings accelerate the dissemination of new discoveries among scientists, private industry, and government, promote education and training, and advance the understanding of extracellular vesicles in biology, health, and disease.

ASEMV Outreach

ASEMV founders have organized Annual Meetings since 2011. ASEMV was formally established in 2012, when 13 American exosome scientists presented an overview of the field to NIH. This meeting was followed by NIH’s establishment of the Extracellular RNA Communication Consortium (ERCC) through the NIH Director’s Common Fund.

The ASEMV and its members continue to help NIH identify opportunities in the field, while also sponsoring scientific conferences, collaborating with other scientific organizations, and advocating for the field.
