Pop open any college biology textbook from the early 1990s. Move over to the textbook’s index and search for “exosomes”. Flip to the right page.
You’re sure to see that somewhere on that page is an explanation that exosomes are, in effect, cellular trash receptacles.
Derided for years as nothing more than backwash no one wanted to touch, exosomes are now at the bleeding edge of radical new diagnostic and therapeutic research.
They’re the new “it”.
This is their amazing story. About what they are, what they can do for us, and how you can harness their power for research, diagnostic, and therapeutic purposes that will hopefully change the world of science.
