Excellular vesicles are small areas of cellular membranes that bud inwardly or outwardly, often carrying cargo from one cell to another. Research is only now beginning to understand how these little packets of information allow cells to talk to one another. Please visit isev.org to find out more about vesicles, the cells’ secret messengers.
The International Society for Extracellular Vesicles (ISEV), in partnership with Arkitek Scientific, announced the release of Extracellular Vesicles: The Cell’s Secret Messengers , an in-depth, virtual look at extracellular vesicles (EV), giving viewers not only an understanding of the various cell types within the human body, but how and why they communicate, and why the study of EV is vital. ISEV and Arkitek Scientific will debut the video at the ISEV Annual Meeting this week.
“We are excited about the release of Extracellular Vesicles: The Cell’s Secret Messengers and I could not be prouder of the effort put in by the ISEV Education Committee and Arkitek Scientific,” said Edit Buzas, Executive Chair of the ISEV Education Committee. “Through the ground-breaking use of virtual reality, the cellular world has been brought to life in this engaging, thoughtful and entertaining animation and the outstanding work of those from our organization and our partners at Arkitek Scientific.”
EV are small, membrane-enclosed structures released by cells, carrying cargo from one cell to another. EV researchers are only now beginning to understand how little packets of information allow cells to communicate with one another.
“For years we’ve been taking viewers into the microscopic world to learn more about biology through 3D animation and now, using virtual reality, that experience is dramatically enhanced,” said Creative Director and Co-founder of Arkitek Scientific, Doug Huff.
“As this type of content becomes more widespread, we believe VR will engage more people in biological topics and help convey information about this intriguing world. Working with Dr. Carter and Dr. Buzas has been a joy from start to finish and we are happy to have developed this partnership,” said Beth Anderson, CEO and Co-founder.
Those outside of the field are unfamiliar with this specialty and tend to shy away from scientific principles and explanations. With this new delivery platform, both visual and textual language are used to help all audiences, regardless of their background, better understand how EV function
