Today, exosomes are increasingly being investigated as a novel class of therapeutics that could explain the functions of many types of traditional cell therapies. To explain this trend, we contacted an esteemed exosome researcher, Dr. Ramon Coronado Schmilinski. Dr. Coronado Schmilinski was the previous Executive Director at Lester Smith Medical Research Institute and is the current VP Regulatory Affairs and Technology Transfer at Signature Biologics.
In this interview, we discuss how he started working with exosomes while looking for mechanisms used by MSCs to exert their therapeutic effects. We discuss the scientific importance of exosomes, their therapeutic and diagnostic applications, and how exosomes are being used within encapsulation and delivery systems.
Read on to learn how these extracellular vesicles could transform the future of modern medicine as we know it.
