[by Michael D. O'Neill, Editor & Publisher of BioQuick News] The International Society for Extracellular Vesicles (ISEV) 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting (July 20-22) (https://www.eventscribe.com/2020/ISEV/) ended its live-streamed events triumphantly on Wednesday, July 22, with an all-time record attendance of 1,600, and the last of over 600 presentations of various types (Plenary Addresses, “Hot-Topic” Panel Sessions, Featured Abstracts, Oral Abstract Talks, Poster Chats, Education Sessions, & Sponsor Presentations), both live-streamed and on-demand. The final live day featured two fantastic plenary addresses, the last of four Featured Abstracts from young investigators (selected on a merit basis from over 700 applicants), the final two of six hugely informative Education Sessions, and the last two of four “Hot-Topic” Panels. The enormously successfully ISEV 2020 closed with wrap-ups of clinical and basic science highlights from the meeting, announcement of the 39 Junior Member Scholarships awarded to young investigators from 17 countries, announcement of the four Featured Abstract winners, presentation of the ISEV 2020 Awards for Outstanding Oral Presentations and for Outstanding Poster Presentations. Also included were remarks from the incoming Co-Chairs of the ISEV International Organization Committee (IOC) 2021 describing the selection of Lyon, France, as the site for the ISEV 2021 Annual Meeting, which will hopefully be held in person.
