The workshop focused on extracellular vesicle RNA (evRNA). It was organized by the International Society for Extracellular Vesicles (ISEV: www.isev. org) in New York on 1-2 October 2012 and was a resounding success. Jan Lötvall (President of ISEV, Gothenburg University, Sweden) and Marca Wauben (ISEV Board Member, Utrecht University, The Netherlands) organized it in a very friendly way in a beautiful venue, all of which was ideal in promoting open and successful scientific exchanges. In total, 50 participants were selected from over 100 applications, based on their expertise in the field of extracellular RNA and/or vesicles (microvesicles, exosomes, ectosomes and others) over several years. Ten percent of the participants came from Australia/Asia, with the remainder equally represented from Europe and the Americas. In addition, a WebEx access to the PowerPoint presentations was set up. This allowed for approximately 50 additional ISEV members to participate remotely in the seminar.(Published: 19 October 2012)Citation: Journal of Extracellular Vesicles 2012, 1: 19857 - http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/jev.v1i0.19857
