Jan Lötvall's Biography

Jan Lötvall, Professor Krefting Research Centre, University of Gothenburg, Chief Scientist, Codiak BioSciences; Founding President of ISEV

Jan Lötvall is a professor at University of Gothenburg, Sweden, and is renowned for having discovered the shuttling of RNA between cells by exosomes. He was also intricately involved in starting the International Society for Extracellular Vesicles (, and was the president for this academic association for the period 2011-2016. He has recently taken on new challenges, developing exosomes as therapeutics, with the startup biotech company Codiak BioSciences Inc in Boston.

This presentation will discuss the mechanisms by which exosomes can exert their effects in recipient cells, discussing their RNA and protein cargo. Further, the talk will discuss the overall vesicular secretome, including subgroups of extracellular vesicles, such as microvesicles, exosomes, and subpopulations within each group. Lastly, the talk will discuss opportunities of high jacking the exosome cell-to-cell communication pathways to develop the next generation of biologicals with the aim to cure complicated diseases.
