CDW 2019 Cells, Sensors and Systems Symposium

Extracellular Vesicle (EV) Analytics: Interpreting the EV Code

November 13, 2019 - San Diego, CA

Welcome to the CDW 2019 Cells, Sensors, and Systems Symposium, hosted by the Scintillon Institute and UCSD. The CDW Symposium features internationally recognized speakers working at the cutting edge of cytometry technology and application. The Symposium is a one day event, free and open to all, but registration is required. This year's theme is: Extracellular Vesicle Analytics, and focuses on the needs and opportunities for high resolution vesicle analysis for the development of new biomarkers, diagnostics, and therapeutics.

Organizing Committee: John Nolan, Scintillon Institute; Louise Laurent, University of California San Diego; Jeff Price, Scintillon Institute
