New collaboration for vesicle research

“Extracellular Vesicles Therapeutic Technologies” is a flagship project of the Science and Innovation Strategy of the state of Salzburg and is supported by funding from the state of Salzburg and the European Regional Development Fund for investments in growth and employment.

Paracelsus Medical University Salzburg initiates new research collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim to investigate the natural regenerative potential of extracellular vesicles derived from human stem cells of the supporting tissue. The application of these vesicles will be studied in musculoskeletal or central nervous system disorders.

For over six years, the PMU has been conducting a research program called “Nanovesicular Therapies” in collaboration with university hospitals and the Paris-Lodron University Salzburg. We have previously reported on this.

The director of the Institute of Experimental Neuroregeneration at PMU Salzburg, Sébastien Couillard-Després, views the collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim as a “visionary cooperation program that enables the development of innovative approaches for treating complex disorders of the central nervous system and musculoskeletal tissue at PMU.”
