Glycobiology is a main area of Glycosciences, dealing with various aspects of glycans, including carbohydrate structure, biochemistry, biological functions and applications. This is necessary in order to sustain and advance the identification of key glycobiological aspects and the application of Glycans and Glycoengineering strategies in the design of novel therapies to improve human health.
Suggested topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
• Glycans in Human Physiological Mechanisms
• Glycans and Cancer
• Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation
• Biosynthesis of Disease Related Carbohydrate Antigens
• Methods in Glycosciences
