Warren_Wakarchuk

Dr. Wakarchuk is a Professor from the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Alberta. The Wakarchuk lab investigates the structure and function of the enzymes which make and degrade various glycoconjugates. This work has been enabling the chemo-enzymatic synthesis of bioactive glycoconjugates both in the laboratory and for industrial projects. The Wakarchuk lab has expertise with both mammalian and bacterial carbohydrate active enzymes for glycan remodelling applications.

lara-mahal
Dr. Mahal is currently the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Glycomics at the University of Alberta. An expert in glycomics and systems-based approaches to understand glycan regulation and function, she developed lectin microarray technology. This technology provides a high-throughput method for glycomics that is now widely applied to understand systems from clinical cancer research to host-pathogen interactions. She is also known for her work on microRNA regulation of glycosylation.
