Speaker Profile

Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer, Exosome Diagnostics

Biography
Johan Skog is a renowned, well-published thought leader in exosome science having pioneered breakthrough discoveries about exosomes and other micro vesicles and their vital role as cell messengers and disease proliferators. While at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, Dr. Skog discovered that tumor-derived mutations can be detected in exosome RNA from serum and other biofluids, findings which were published in Nature Cell Biology in 2008. Additionally, he demonstrated that exosomes serve to deliver messages to other cells, inducing changes favorable to the proliferation of cancer. Dr. Skog is the inventor of several novel exosome isolation platforms that are used clinically and has over 138 applications/divisional/or granted patents in the exosome field. He continues to expand the research on exosome biology and lead critical advancements in diagnostics, including the world’s first exosome-based diagnostic tests that have now helped over 60,000 patients.
