Special Issue Introduction

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) have shown great potential for biomarker profiling and disease treatment. The recent decade has witnessed rapid advancements in extracellular vesicle-based diagnosis and therapy. With the development of interdisciplinary approaches, biomedical engineering (BME) technologies play increasingly important roles in EVs research to facilitate the translation of EV study from bench to bedside, which may be realized by engineering EVs through multidisciplinary collaborations including medicine, biology, physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering, etc. This Special Issue aims to collect research articles/reviews/new insights covering but not limited to the following four topics:
● BME-assisted new understanding of EVs biogenesis, release and uptake as well as their dynamic profiles in normal and pathological conditions;
● Development of labeling and in vivo tracking techniques of EVs;
● Engineered EVs for in vivo targeted delivery;
● Design of biomaterials for building EV delivery systems for tissue regeneration.
