Do you study glycosicnece? Do you want to connect with colleagues in the field? Become a GlycoNet Network Investigator!

What is GlycoNet?

GlycoNet is a national research network linking the glycomic research community across Canada, with the vision of improving the quality of life of Canadians through the study of glycomics. Our research falls within five broad themes: antimicrobials, rare genetic diseases, diabetes and obesity, chronic diseases, and therapeutic proteins and vaccines. Our network investigators include biologists, biochemists, clinicians, chemists and more. GlycoNet periodically hosts grant competitions (open to anyone to apply), but there are many benefits to joining the network in the absence of a funded project.
