Cluster of Research Excellence in Exosome Isolation

Creating a novel exosome isolation platform for early disease diagnosis

This cluster brings together four researchers from engineering, chemistry, health and exercise sciences and medicine to address early disease diagnosis through exosome detection and isolation. Exosomes are ubiquitous nano-vesicles in all body fluids and have only recently been shown to be key mediators and biomarkers in several diseases, including cancer and Alzheimer’s. Detecting and isolating exosomes is a critical next step towards understanding disease propagation, achieving early diagnosis, and developing potential disease treatments through regenerative medicine and drug delivery.
