Co-Isolation of Cytokines and Exosomes: Implications for Immunomodulation Studies

 

Abstract

Dr Shu will be discussing his recent review paper "Co-Isolation of Cytokines and Exosomes: Implications for Immunomodulation Studies".
Exosomes play a vital role in intercellular communication and their immunomodulatory potential has become an important focus in cancer research. In melanoma, tumor-derived exosomes drive immunosuppression within the tumor microenvironment. In this webinar, Dr Shu examines the possibility that free cytokines in 'purified' exosome samples may be causing biological effects that can be wrongly attributed to exosomes.

About the speaker

Dr. Shin La Shu is a Research Scientist at the ImmunoOncology Branch (IOB), Developmental Therapeutics Program, Division of Cancer Treatment & Diagnosis, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health (NIH) with 15 years of research experience in understanding tumor biology and the immunobiology of human cancer. Dr. Shu has contributed to the understanding of miRNA payloads in tumor exosomes, through which melanoma cells can reprogram the metabolism of normal stroma. Prior to joining the NIH, Dr. Shu was a Research Assistant Professor of Oncology in Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, where he also served as co-Chair of the Exosome Working Group from 2017 to 2020. He is the corresponding author to the recent review, “Co-Isolation of Cytokines and Exosomes: Implications for Immunomodulation Studies” published in Frontiers in Immunology: Cancer Immunology and Immunotherapy (April 2021).
