Learning objectives

After watching the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • recognise exosome basics – what are extracellular vesicles and how to isolate them;
  • appreciate the beneficial effects that exosomes appear to have on the heart following myocardial infarction;
  • understand some of the practical and experimental limitations of using exosomes; and
  • identify what remains to be investigated and determined about exosomes.
