GlycoNet – CNTRP Collaborative Directions: Common Goals for Two Canadian Research Networks

GlycoNet and the CNTRP are pleased to share a new joint publication that captures current and future areas of research collaborations and enhanced synergy between the two networks. The publication is an important output of a joint workshop held in May 2016.  Topics described and covered in the publication included:

  • the use of enzymes to generate universal tissue and blood products,
  • the role of antibody glycan structures in inflammation,
  • glycosylation of exosomes and microvesicles,
  • cryopreservation technologies,
  • mass cytometry analysis,
  • microbiome glycans, and
  • xenotransplantation.

This publication will be used as a blueprint to guide future research and partnership strategies between GlycoNet and the CNTRP.  We encourage you to share this publication with your colleagues and we would like to thank Dr. Mélanie Dieudé and Dr. Chris Cairo, as well as Dr. Lori West and Dr. Todd Lowary, for initiating this collaboration and for writing this publication.
