ASEMV2022/AAEV2022 Annual Meeting

After a two-year hiatus from in-person ASEMV meetings, we’re writing to invite you to ASEMV2022/AAEV2022, a joint conference combining the 11th annual meeting of the American Society for Exosomes and Microvesicles, with the 2nd meeting of the newly formed, American Association for Extracellular Vesicles (AAEV). ASEMV2022/AAEV2022 is organized in support of a rational and objective 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 of high-impact and high-quality research in the 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 forum for 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 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 are encouraged to submit an abstract and present a poster, making our evening poster sessions one of the best ways to get to know the field, meet your colleagues, find new opportunities for collaboration, and relax in the beautiful setting of the California beach (refreshments included!).
In addition to its outstanding scientific program and beautiful location, 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.
Thank you for your support, and we look forward to welcoming you in California!
With Regards,
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.
