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.
