Slugs as pests and science popularisers: Watch a report from our Faculty

Research on exosomes derived from the slime of unpopular pests, slugs and snails, has garnered public attention through a report by Czech Television. Reporters visited the Centre for Nanomaterials and Biotechnology to document a team of scientists from our Faculty extracting cell sacs not only from the slime of Spanish slugs but also from plants.

Watch the complete report. Additionally, you can see what happened behind the scenes of the report in our gallery.

For those interested in delving deeper into the topic of plant vesicle utilisation, more detailed information can be found in the article on plant and slug exosomes.
