Advanced Courses

Glycobiology and the science of glycoconjugates continue to evolve over the last decades. New findings and technological advances are continuously reshaping the field and leading to new research areas and translational opportunities. To prime those new to the field including many young aspiring students and postdocs, Glyco26 has arranged for several prominent glycoscientists to provide a series of lectures on selected glyco-topics of interest. The Advanced Courses, which are organized into three sections, aim not only to give an updated account but also historical perspectives on some of the most fundamental and fascinating aspects of protein O-glycosylation, glycan recognition by major classes of endogenous glycan binding proteins, and the art of analyzing glycan structures from the early days to current glycomics. These lectures are open to all participants of Glyco26 without charging additional fees. Sessions will be recorded and made available to the Glyco-community through IGO/SFG after Glyco26.

Date: Aug 26–27, 2023
