Extracellular Vesicles and Bacteriophages: New Directions in Biocolloid Research

A recent study, led by Mark R. Wiesner  has shed light on the intricate dynamics of extracellular vesicles (EVs) and bacteriophages in the realm of life sciences.

These microscopic entities are proving to be pivotal in microbiology, offering promising avenues for understanding and combatting diseases. By delving deep into the complexities of colloid science, the study examines closely the properties and interactions of EVs and bacteriophages. Through examining their environmental impact and surface properties, researchers aim to illuminate their behavior and potential applications in healthcare and beyond.

Co-author Meta J. Kuehn, will be joining Targeting EVs 2024 this October to discuss the topic of “Modulation of Phage-Microbe Interactions and Antimicrobial Resistance by Bacterial Extracellular Vesicles”. Stay tuned to learn more about this booming topic.
