Glycobiology and Glycochemistry

Glycobiology and Glycochemistry are the two main intertwined areas of Glycosciences, dealing with various aspects of glycan’s, 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 glycan’s and glyco-engineering strategies in the design of novel therapies to improve human health. The glycans (carbohydrates) form a diverse group of biomolecules which play active parts in most physiological processes. The field of structural glycobiology concerns the structures of the glycans themselves, the proteins which interact with them and the nature of the interactions between the two. Drug targeting is important for our understanding of human health and disease, and for development of new therapeutic strategies.
