On December 12, 2021, the Chinese Academic Conference on tumor markers and the 15th Young Scientists Forum on tumor markers was held successfully. The conference announced the winner of the "First Exosomes and Microvesicle Forum Award: CSEMV & EVCNA Best Lectureship Award", Professor Hang Yin of Tsinghua University, China.
Professor Yin has been engaged in exosome research for many years. His research group is the first on revealing the molecular mechanism of immune cells transmitting immune signals under the condition of Toll-like receptor activation, which filled the gap of molecular regulation mechanism in the process of EVs uptake. It was of great significance for liquid biopsy and treatment of diseases and laid a foundation for the study of the specific molecular mechanism of extracellular vesicles.
The forum also selected the two best poster awards to encourage young scholars in this field, which were obtained by Dr. Kai Li of Jinan University, China, and Dr. XiangYu Tian of the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University, China.
Congratulations to Professor Hang Yin, Dr. Kai Li, and Dr. XiangYu Tian!
