The next installment of “COS Science Fridays” will be this Friday, March 4, at 12:00 noon in Exploratory Hall room 3301, Fairfax Campus.

Pizza and drinks will be served.

If you are on the SciTech campus, we encourage you to create a group and watch together via the livestream, available on the COS YouTube page

Speaker: Dr. Fatah Kashanchi, Director of Research for the Biomedical Research Laboratory and Professor of Microbiology

Title: Extracellular Vesicles allow communication between cells and organs.

Description: We will describe the effect of extracellular vesicles (i.e., exosomes) and how they control fate of neighboring cells. General descriptions will be based on donor cells as well as recipient cells that receive the exosomes. We will use examples of virally infected cells that are either latent or have been treated with antiviral drugs and how they secrete and communicate these exosomes to the uninfected cells and organs. In that effect is the survival of pathogens through the use of vesicular communication that generates the overall pathology observed in an infection.


This informal lecture series is designed to provide members of COS community the opportunity to hear about each other’s work. It is open to all faculty, postdocs, and graduate students.

Speakers are asked to give a 30-minute presentation about their work.  Would you like to be our next speaker? Register at
