In the last months the Laboratory of Experimental Urology published a number of high impact papers on extracellular vesicles in urological research.
In May, we authored the position paper on Urinary Extracellular vesicles by the Urine Task Force of the International Society for Extracellular Vesicles (ISEV). The position paper is authored by more than 40 urologists, nephrologists and biologists specializing in the field. A main emphasis is the importance of rigor and standardization in research as the bridge to clinical translation and is published in the Journal of Extracellular Vesicles (JEV) https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/jev2.12093
The paper was highlighted in a research letter in European Urology “Urinary Extracellular Vesicles in Urology: Current Successes and Challenges Ahead” (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0302283821020558).
Exciting international research collaboration of Dr. Martens-Uzunova and Dr Carolina Soekmadji, Australia resulted in another original research publication on the effect of androgens on the production and cargo of EVs; published in JEV https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/jev2.12136
Last but not least, our international collaborative review on “Onco-snoRNA and ribosomal methylation in cancer” was accepted for publication in the special issue on Epitranscriptomics of RNA Biology.
