Exosomes: The Next Small Thing

Life Technologies, now part of Thermo Scientific, asked 10 prominent scientists to share their thoughts on science and in particular the field of exosome research. This video is part one of a six-part video-series that tells the story and history of this exciting new area of research, and its impact on other research fields such as cancer and immunology. 

For more on exosomes, be sure to check out “Harnessing the Power of Exosomes” by Johan Skog, Ph.D., from the fourth issue of Clinical OMICs.
