Researcher biography

Joy Wolfram leads a nanomedicine and extracellular vesicle research laboratory with the goal of developing innovative approaches that bring the next generation of treatments and diagnostics directly to the clinic. Her research program has three main focus areas: 1) develop improved methods for extracellular vesicle isolation from human biofluids, 2) design hybrid drug delivery systems consisting of extracellular vesicles fused with synthetic nanoparticles for a 'best-of-both-worlds' approach, and 3) understand the role of extracellular vesicles in breast cancer metastasis.
