EMBL Courses and Conferences during the Coronavirus pandemic

With the onsite programme paused, many of our events are now being offered in virtual formats.

Registration is open as usual for many events, with back-up plans in place to move further courses and conferences online as necessary. Registration fees for any events affected by the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.

More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.

Course Overview

This interactive virtual event targets scientists working in the field of extracellular vesicles (beginners level). We provide a platform to discuss about your methodology-related questions on EV isolation and characterization with the 4 organisers of the annual EMBL course on Extracellular Vesicles. The organisers will give short presentations about pre-analytical variables, EV isolation methods, EV visualization by microscopy and EV protein and RNA analysis. This will be followed by break-out sessions with the organizers for Q&A and further discussion.


  • Effects of preanalytical variables on EV analysis
  • Separation of EV from biofluids
  • Microscopic visualization of EV
  • Characterization of the molecular contents of EV

A more in-depth practical course will take place on 21 - 26 November 2021


EMBL Courses and Conferences are kindly supported by our Corporate Partnership Programme
