This technology applies to the isolation, purification, and recovery of extracellular vesicles from plant materials, referred to as plant-derived extracellular vesicles. The exosome population of the PDEVs are employed for use as vectors for the delivery of therapeutics. Exosome vectors are a promising means for the treatment of many diseases, many of which are currently in clinical trials. Roots Analysis…

Semiconductor optical fibers marry the enablement of modern electronic devices of semiconductors with the light-guiding capability of fiber optics. Combining these attributes allows for the desirable material properties of important semiconductor phases in the form of long lengths of fiber. Semiconductor optical fibers are made using one of two approaches: the molten core method and a chemical vapor deposition method….
