Our Seminar Series

The Institute for Glycomics' Seminar Series aims to promote excellence in glycosciences and stimulate the exchange of ideas, foster collaborative research activities, and connect scientists across multiple disciplines.

Seminar topics can cover (but are not limited to) the latest developments in the fields of organic synthesis, drug discovery, immunology, structural biology, and also bacteriology, infectious disease, basic and applied cancer research, integrated -omics technologies (such as proteomics, glycomics, glycoproteomics or lipidomics, etc) or bioinformatics.
