3. Product-oriented abstracts submitted by industry representatives that do not meet the scientific or clinical requirements will not be accepted for oral presentations. However, they may be accepted for poster presentation. The presenting author is responsible for ensuring that all authors have read the abstract and agreed to be coauthors. The presenting author is also responsible for submitting all of the information required for co-authors: Name, Affiliation, City, Country, etc. If the research included in your abstract was supported by industry, indicate this when uploading your abstract.

2) EVs in pathogenesis of diseases (Cancer, Immunology and Neuroscience)  
3) EVs as Biomarkers
