Learning Objectives

  • To understand the basic biology of extracellular vesicles.
  • To understand the initial separative and characterization approaches in extracellular vesicle research.
  • To understand the functional effects of vesicles and possible applications to injury and disease states.

Who should attend

Faculty, researchers, and affiliated staff at Lifespan, Brown, and URI who are interested in the biological and clinical role and potential of extracellular vesicles. Physician scientists and junior faculty are encouraged to attend.

The COBRE Center for Stem Cells and Aging is established in the Division of Hematology/Oncology Research, Rhode Island Hospital.

Principal Investigator Peter J. Quesenberry MD

Associate Director John Sedivy PhD

SCA COBRE consists of research focused on stem cells and various aspects of aging, fibrosis and cellular senescence. Projects focus on hematopoietic stem cells, their microenvironment and the impact of aging on the fibrotic component of that microenvironment, while other projects deal with neural stem cells and their regulation with aging. Promising applications for the research include regeneration and repair for the treatment of leukemia, lymphomas, various neurodegenerative disorders and different aspects of aging.
