(Written for BioQuick News by Michael A. Goldman, PhD, Professor & Former Chair, Biology, San Francisco State University, https://faculty.sfsu.edu/~goldman/) The International Society for Extracellular Vesicles (ISEV) 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting (July 20-22) (https://www.eventscribe.com/2020/ISEV/), with a record 1,600 virtual attendees from 52 countries around the world, and offering ~600 presentations of various types (Plenary Addresses, “Hot-Topic” Panel Sessions, Featured Abstracts, Oral Abstract Talks, Poster Chats, & Education Sessions), both live-streamed and on-demand, showcased its second Plenary Address on Monday, July 20. This address was titled “EVs in Neurological Diseases,” and was delivered by Hollis Cline (photo), PhD, the Hahn Professor of Neuroscience and Co-Chair of the Department of Neuroscience at Scripps Research in La Jolla, California, USA. Dr. Cline (https://www.scripps.edu/faculty/cline/) is also a Counselor for the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and a Past President of the Society for Neuroscience. She received her BA from Bryn Mawr College and her PhD from the University of California at Berkeley, followed by postdoctoral training at Yale University and Stanford University. Dr. Cline has served on the faculty of the University of Iowa and the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, where she served as the Director of Research from 2002-2006. Dr. Cline’s research has demonstrated the roles of a variety of activity-dependent mechanisms in controlling structural plasticity of neuronal dendrites and axons, synaptic maturation, and topographic map formation. This body of work has helped to generate a comprehensive understanding of the role of experience in shaping brain development.
