My name is Edwin van der Pol and I am interested in the detection of extracellular vesicles as biomarkers for disease. I am a scientist at the department of Biomedical engineering and Physics and the Laboratory of Experimental Clinical Chemistry in the Amsterdam University Medical Centers, The Netherlands. Furthermore, I am co-founder of the company Exometry, which applies physics to understand and push the technological limits involved in vesicle detection. This website contains information about my research and an overview of my publications.
