5 themes and 4 cores v.5Glycomics is a multidisciplinary field with broad potential applications. GlycoNet’s research program focuses primarily on applications in human health and is based on five synergistic themes: antimicrobials, rare genetic diseases, diabetes and obesity, chronic diseases and therapeutic proteins and vaccines. In addition, GlycoNet will offer a set of four core service facilities for researchers: high-throughput screening, glycan screening, glycan structure analysis and chemical synthesis. These core services will be invaluable to advancing the work of GlycoNet investigators and will serve as a magnet for industry partners seeking to undertake applied research in glycomics.
