Congrès FSEV 2019 - French Society of Extracellular Vesicles


2nd FSEV congress

Extracellular Vesicles in Health & Disease

14-15 October 2019

Early bird & abstract submission deadline closes June 15, 2019!

The 2nd Congress of the French Society of Extracellular Vesicles (FSEV) will be held in Nantes, France on 14-15 October 2019. This event will focus on the role of extracellular vesicles in health & disease. With 200 attendees at the 1rst congress in 2017, this is the perfect occasion to meet basic scientists, clinicians and industrial professionals active in the EV field from France and neighboring countries.

Chantal Boulanger 1

Chantal M. Boulanger, PhD, obtained her PhD in Pharmacology at the University of Strasbourg and spent her research fellowships at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN and in Basel, Switzerland. She was appointed Assistant Professor at Baylor College Medicine in Houston in 1991. She joined the French National Health and Medical Research Institute (INSERM) in 1995 as Director or Research. She has been leading an INSERM team on extracellular vesicles in cardiovascular diseases since 2004. She has co-authored over 160 peer-reviewed publications and 17 books or book chapters and has been acting as an Associate Editor of Arteriosclerosis Thrombosis and Vascular Biology since 2010 and Journal Extracellular Vesicles since 2018. She is currently the Director of the Paris-Cardiovascular Research Center

An Hendrix

An Hendrix is assistant professor at Ghent University and group leader at the Cancer Research Institute Ghent (CRIG) ( Her team studies small Rab GTPase-mediated release of extracellular vesicles (EV) by tumors, and the isolation and characterization of these nanometer-sized vesicles from liquid biopsies (PMID:30518529; PMID:28245209; PMID:25317274, PMID:20484105). To allow and boost the clinical implementation of EV in daily practice An Hendrix significantly invested in standardization and reproducibility of EV research since this is the foremost important step to initiate biomarker discovery. She is founder of the EV-TRACK consortium that aims to increase transparent reporting and reproducibility in EV research ( She yearly organizes the EMBO/EMBL hands-on course on EV (Heidelberg, Germany: and is founder of the Belgian Society for Extracellular Vesicles that connects Belgian scientists working on EV (

Eric Oswald

Pr Eric Oswald is the head of the laboratory of bacteriology at the university hospital of Toulouse and the deputy director of the Digestive Health Research Institute (IRSD ; E. Oswald has 160 peer-reviewed international publications (H Factor 45). He is an expert in cellular microbiology and molecular biology of pathogenic Escherichia coli. His highly productive, multidisciplinary and cooperative team is currently consisting of twenty people. Several of the publications generated by this group represent milestones in the understanding of bacterial pathogenicity especially the discovery of new toxins and secretion systems including the production of Outer Membrane Vesicles (OMV).
