6th International GEIVEX symposium

October 26-28, 2022

Dear colleague,

Since our last symposium back in 2019, and besides these difficult times in the context of COVID19 health crisis, at GEIVEX we are excited to announce the 6th International GEIVEX symposium that will be held on 26-28th of October 2022 in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. GEIVEX is a young, but already consolidated, non-profit organization which exists to promote research, innovation, and knowledge exchange in the field of Extracellular Vesicles (EVs). Our purpose is to advance personalized medicine by developing new tools and biomarkers with high social impact to generate benefits and equality in global health.


On this occasion, based on the successful previous experience at Granada GEIVEX symposium in 2019, we have also organized a Hands-on workshop on the pre-meeting day (October 25th) under the scope “Hands on exploring methodologies for EV translational research and biomarker detection”. We are very aware that this type of activity is very welcomed by EVs researchers and a great opportunity for the companies to promote state-of-the art technologies for EV analysis. Thus, this demonstration will be focus in EV-specialised equipment of interest for EV researchers, both in the laboratory and at translational level for the clinical practice. We believe that the combination of basic and clinical research, like in many other fields, is the basis of translational EVs analysis leading to future approaches for tackling disease. This 6th International Symposium will focus on novel concepts and clinical applications of EVs paying special attention to methodology for the identification of biomarkers and therapy targets. In order to make this symposium even more exciting, to achieve productive discussions and maintain the excellent standards, we are working on a selected list of high-quality keynote speakers for each session that we believe will fulfil EVs researcher expectations.


Beyond all, this 6th International Symposium in 2022 will provide an important opportunity to create and strengthen partnerships between professionals dedicated to EVs research, from both basic and clinical fields and to meet renowned speakers in the field. The chosen venue will be the Auditorium of the Faculty of Medicine of Santiago de Compostela University (USC), with all the modern facilities for conferences and located at the heart of the Santiago de Compostela historic old town. Compostela is a World Heritage Site by UNESCO thanks to its monumental beauty, extraordinary conservation and for being the goal of a millenary pilgrimage route: El Camino de Santiago (the Way of St. James). The venue is located beside Praza do Obradoiro that holds the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, the Prazas Quintana, Inmaculada and Praterías surrounded by the main historical streets of the city with plenty of cafés, restaurants, and charming hotels.


The Faculty of Medicine, holding the venue Auditorium, is a historic building recently refurbished with its own Cafeteria and Restaurant, offering a relaxed and open environment for interaction between attendees and high visibility for sponsors.


We look forward to your active participation in the meeting that will additionally let you enjoy an exceptional location.
