ASEMV Working Groups promote the development of specific areas within the fields of exosome and extracellular RNA (exRNA) research. ASEMV Working Groups are a direct extension of working groups that originated in the NIH Extracellular RNA Communication Consortium (ERCC). Their migration to the ASEMV ensures their continued operation, a broadening of their mission, and a larger, more diverse membership.
