Masterclass: Prof. Edit Buzas, Semmelweis University, Budapest
Title: ‘Extracellular vesicles in the secretome in health and diseases’
Edit Buzás MD,is Professor in the Department of Genetics, Cell- and Immunbiology at Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary. She graduated as an MD in Szeged, received her PhD in 1996 in immunology, and she got her DSc degree in 2007. She worked for two years in the Joint Diseases Labor-atory, Shriner’s Hospital, McGill University, Montreal, Canada and for one year at the Rush Medical Center, Chicago, USA. Her earlier research focused on autoimmunity, rheumatoid arthritis, T cell epitope hierarchy, experimental models of arthritis, glyco-biology. In 1995 she was a winner of the Carol Nachman Preis für Rheumatologie in Germany. With her team in Budapest she has been working on extracellular vesicles since 2006. Her group demonstrated for the first time that microvesicles share bio-physical parameters with protein aggregates. As a consequence, protein aggre-gates may confound the detection of microvesicles and may contaminate mi-crovesicle preparations. She is a member of the Editorial Board of the currently launching journal „Exosomics”, Associate Editor of the Journal of Extracellular Vesi-cles and founding member of the International Society of Extracellular Vesicles and the Vesiclepedia Data Capture Initiative.
