N1 - Funding Information: Takahiro Ochiya has served as Chief of the National Cancer Center Research Institute of Japan and on the council of the Japanese Cancer Association. He has authored more than 300 peer-reviewed publications and holds numerous patents in Japan, the US, and Europe. Dr. Ochiya has been a chief scientist of a program project in Japan, “Development of Diagnostic Technology for Detection of miRNA in Body Fluids,” which is supported by NEDO/AMED. Dr. Ochiya has served as President of the Japanese Society for Extracellular Vesicles (JSEV) as well as in leadership roles in the Japanese Society for RNA Interferences (JARI). In 2018 and 2019, Dr. Ochiya assisted with planning ISEV2019 as a member of the International Organizing Committee. At the meeting, he also delivered a plenary address, entitled “Extracellular Vesicles as Novel Therapeutic Targets in Cancer Metastasis.” For many years, Dr. Ochiya has been at the forefront of microRNA and EV research. Building on numerous contributions to the stem cell and small RNA therapeutics fields [for example ], his group reported in 2010 that EVs mediate the release and uptake of microRNAs (miRNAs) . In the same year, they also found that miRNAs could be delivered to cancer cells to suppress metastasis . Dr. Ochiya and his team have probed the mechanisms of EV-mediated microRNA transfer  and have contributed to seminal work on the targeting of EVs to tumor cells . His group has also been interested in the contributions of milk EVs and extracellular RNA to offspring health .
