A 2-day workshop being held in association with the

Parasitic Helminths: New Perspectives in Biology and Infection’ Conference 2019


This is a FREE event open to all researchers working in the field of extracellular vesicles and/or helminthology. Places are limited however, so please apply by completing the downloadable registration form (link and instructions below).

Day 1: 14:30 – 18:00 Saturday 31 August 2019    continuing      Day 2: 09:00 – 14:00 Sunday 01 September 2019

Location: Bratsera Hotel, Hydra, Greece

Exploring new research opportunities

Studies exploring how helminth extracellular vesicles (EVs) influence heterospecific (host) and conspecific relationships are increasing in number within our community.  However, a lack of standardised methodologies, protocols and terminologies is hindering progress and preventing transformative breakthroughs.  By bringing together EV experts and helminthologists for this workshop, we expect to thoroughly explore these topics and identify new research challenges/opportunities for the future. 


A standardised set of guidelines will be agreed upon for the helminth community studying EV biology. A Special Issue of helminth EV biology will also be developed for publication in IJP.
