Jan Lötvall's Biography



Jan Lötvall, Professor, University of Gothenburg; Founding President of ISEV; Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Extracellular Vesicles

Jan Lötvall, MD PhD, is Professor at the Institute of Medicine at Göteborg University since 2002 where he directs a research laboratory studying extracellular vesicles. He is a medical specialist in both Clinical Allergy and Clinical Pharmacology, and has a long-term experience in translational studies in in primarily inflammatory models, but also cancer. JLs laboratory was first to show that exosomes carry and shuttle RNA between cell, published in 2007. He was first elected President of the International Society of Extracellular Vesicles (ISEV, 2011-2016), and has recently taken over the editor in chief position for the society’s Journal of Extracellular Vesicles (JEV, IF 11.00). During the period of May 2016 to January 2018, JL served as Chief Scientist at Codiak BioSciences, a startup biotech company focusing on developing exosomes as a therapeutic platform. In 2018, JL spent a sabbatical at Massachusetts General Hospital, working with Professor Xandra Breakefield (Harvard).

This presentation will discuss the diversity of extracellular vesicles, primarily from a clinical perspective. Specifically, the presentation will show the presence of extracellular vesicles in tissues, specifically healthy tissues as well as different types of tumors.  Data showing the presence of multiple types of EVs in different types of tissues will be presented, as well as the opportunities of utilizing that knowledge for clinical use.
