Though exosomes, vesicles found in biofluid of eukaryotes, were originally believed to do little more than clear out cellular waste, we now know they are critical for a cell's ability to communicate with its neighbors. As exosome isolation techniques improve, researchers are able to study exosomes more closely, opening the door to better determine their functionality, discover biomarkers, and engineer them to deliver targeted treatments to cells and organs as therapeutics for a number of diseases.
