Therapeutic Applications of Microbial Extracellular Vesicles

Steven Jay

University of Maryland, USA

Prof. Steven Jay  from the University of Maryland, USA will join the First World Congress on Targeting Extracellular Vesicles.

Topic: Therapeutic Applications of Microbial Extracellular Vesicles

Prof Jay's talk will investigate bacterial extracellular vesicles (BEVs) as key players in gut-brain communication. Examining their involvement in neuroinflammatory diseases and their potential therapeutic applications, it will shed light on their dual role as both contributors to and solutions for neuropathological conditions.
  • Gram-positive bacteria such as lactic acid bacteria especially produce vesicles with anti-inflammatory properties that can be harnessed for treatment of diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease.
  • Bioengineering approaches can address critical limitations for translation of some microbial vesicles to product by improving production yields and increasing potency through control of molecular cargo.
