Proposals for thesis
Thesis proposals relate to in vitro and in vivo evaluation of extracellular vesicles (EVS) as therapeutic tools in two main areas:
immunomodulatory activity (extracellular vesicles from stem cells / mesenchymal stromals)
EVs as vectors of chemical or biological drugs (extracellular vesicles from osteoblasts with specific targeting to the bone)
