The Canadian Glycomics Network (GlycoNet) is a Network of Centres of Excellence that focuses on the role of glycans in health. Areas of focus for GlycoNet in Cycle II (2020–2024) are cancer, chronic diseases, infectious diseases, and neurodegenerative diseases.
GlycoNet funds projects along the following research innovation continuum: translational research and development, clinical engagement, technology development, and knowledge and technology exchange and exploitation (KTEE).

Collaborative Team Grants

A key goal of GlycoNet is to support research projects that are multi-disciplinary. These grants seek to fund both new research and extensions of current projects that involve two or more research groups in different disciplines. At least 50% of the allocated budget will be reserved for new projects, with priority given to researchers who have not received GlycoNet funding in Cycle II. Proposals may request up to $150,000, to be completed within 12-18 months; 1:1 matching required. This program is no longer available.

International Partnerships

GlycoNet has formalized a partnership with Academia Sinica to co-fund collaborative research between two entities. These grants fund projects that involve at least two groups, one in Canada and one in Taiwan. GlycoNet will fund research conducted in Canada, while Academia Sinica will fund research conducted in Taiwan. Projects require at least a 1:1 matching and must be completed within 12 months. This program is no longer available.
