GlycoNet is advancing research, innovation, and training in glycomics to improve the quality of life of Canadians.

GlycoNet is a one-stop global destination focused on developing new carbohydrate-based drugs, vaccines and diagnostics, in collaboration with academic and industry organizations to address areas of unmet need through applied glycomics research. This national platform supports translational research, protection of intellectual property, novel drug development, company formation and training of a new generation of glyco-scientists and entrepreneurs. The network includes over 170 researchers across Canada who focus on cancer, chronic diseases, infectious diseases, and neurodegenerative diseases.

GlycoNet is funded by the Government of Canada through the Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) Program.

GlycoNet “punches above its weight” in glycomics innovation.
(Institute of Health Economics Report, 2021)
