Functionalising extracellular vesicles as instrumental tools to nanomedicine, cosmetics and nutraceutics
VES4US wants to develop a radically new platform for the efficient production and functionalisation of extracellular vesicles, for the exploitation of the results in the fields of nanomedicine, cosmetics and nutraceutics. This will be accomplished by loading with specific cargoes directly in isolated extracellular vesicles or by the modulation of producer cells.
