GlycoNet’s research falls within four broad themes: cancer, chronic diseases, infectious diseases, and neurodegenerative diseases. Our Network Investigators include biologists, biochemists, clinicians, chemists and more. GlycoNet periodically hosts grant competitions, and there are many benefits to joining the network in the absence of a funded project.
