Since 2013, the NIH Extracellular RNA Communication Consortium (ERCC) has been working to understand the biological functions of extracellular RNAs (exRNAs) and vesicles in the healthy body and in disease. The consortium aims to identify disease biomarkers that can be assayed from biofluids rather than through an invasive biopsy and to develop therapies for disease using exRNA and extracellular vesicles. This ERCC semi-annual meeting that will showcase the latest developments in the field of exRNA and extracellular vesicle research.
