The 2017 GlycoNet AGM & Canadian Glycomics Symposium and Immuno-oncology Workshop took place May 8th – 12th, 2017, in Banff, Alberta, Canada.
The 2018 Canadian Glycomics Symposium will take place May 9th – 11th, 2018 at the Banff Park Lodge, with the GlycoNet AGM scheduled for May 7th – 9th.
The Canadian Glycomics Symposium is the premiere North American meeting for researchers in the field of glycomics.
This annual Symposium will bring together nearly all Canadian glycomics researchers, as well as international researchers in the field. We typically welcome more than 200 researchers, trainees, and stakeholders in the fields of glycomics, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals.
The meeting will serve as an exciting opportunity to glimpse the frontiers of knowledge in the emerging field of glycomics, with ample opportunities for professional development and networking.
The Symposium will feature presentations from notable national and international experts in carbohydrate science, as well as an open forum for young scientists to highlight their research.
Registration for the 2018 Symposium will open in January.
The Canadian Glycomics Network (GlycoNet) is a pan-Canadian initiative connecting more than 100 researchers from 25 academic and research institutions, working together with numerous industry and international partners, to develop solutions to unmet health needs through the study of glycomics. By bringing together all key Canadian glycomics researchers, GlycoNet will deliver novel solutions to important health issues.
GlycoNet was announced in February 2015, and since that time has funded dozens of research projects.
About the Alberta Glycomics Centre
The Alberta Glycomics Centre (formerly known as Alberta Ingenuity Centre for Carbohydrate Science, AICCS) comprises a team of highly motivated individuals whose research interests span a multidisciplinary array of biological processes and technologies specific to carbohydrate research.
The fields of chemistry, biology, medicine, and engineering are dynamically integrated as experts in areas such as carbohydrate synthesis, protein-carbohydrate interactions, glycoengineering, drug discovery, vaccine development, mass spectrometry, and X-ray crystallography work together to explore carbohydrate science. Currently, 10 principal investigators conduct their research as part of the Glycomics Centre.
