2017 Freston Conference: A Look at Session One

March 14, 2017

Learn what to expect at the first session of the September conference, which will focus on the biogenesis and secretion of extracellular vesicles.

Faculty from the 2017 James W. Freston Conference, which takes places Sept. 9 and 10 in St. Paul, MN, are excited to provide more details about the upcoming conference. Over the next few weeks, we’ll highlight sessions from the conference and provide you with insight on what you can expect to be addressed. This week, we’ve outlined highlights from the first session.

Discovery: Biogenesis and Secretion
The 2017 conference kicks things off by examining the synthesis and release of extracellular vesicles (EVs). Specifically, attendees will be able to:

  • Explore key factors in determining protein trafficking to secreted vesicles.
  • Get insight on the differences between vesicle biogenesis and the vesicular budding of specific cargo proteins.
  • Examine the role of exosomes, and other EVs, play in communication between cancer and the immune system.

Be sure to check AGA eDigest and the AGA website for details on session two. To register and view the program in its entirety, visit the conference website.
