Our speaker will be Dr Carlos Salomon, PhD, DMedSc, MSc, Senior Lions Medical Research Foundation Fellow; Head, Exosome Biology Laboratory, Centre for Clinical Diagnostics, UQ Centre of Clinical Research.
He will be presenting 'Extracellular vesicles everywhere - Potential diagnostic tools and therapeutic interventions.'
Dr. Carlos Salomon completed his PhD at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile while also being trained in the regulations of transport systems at the University of Barcelona (2010), placental function during pregnancy at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (2011) and mass spectrometry (MS) at the University of Queensland (2012).
He is a mid-career researcher with a strong track record relative to opportunity. His work is internationally recognized and published in leading journals in his field with 78 journal publications between 2010-2018.

In 2015, he was awarded a Lions Medical Research Fellowship and appointed as senior research fellow. He has established and now leads an independent research group, Exosome Biology Laboratory, exploring the role of exosomes under normal and pathological conditions. His group applies ISO standards to the isolation, characterization of exosomes and has elucidated their role as to evaluate their clinical utility as biomarkers of disease and therapeutic interventions. He is currently Visiting Professor at the University of Concepcion (Chile) and Texas Tech University HSC School of Medicine.
