Glycobiology and Glycochemistry

Glycochemistry and Glycobiology are the two main intertwined areas of Glycosciences, dealing with various aspects of glycans, including carbohydrate structure, biochemistry, biological functions and applications. This is required in order to maintain and advance the recognition of important glycobiological features and the application of glycans and glyco-engineering strategies in the design of novel treatments to improve human health. The glycans (carbohydrates) form a varied cluster of biomolecules which play active parts in most biological processes. The arena of structural glycobiology involves of the structures of the glycans themselves, the proteins which interact with them and the nature of the interactions between the two. Drug targeting is an important aspect in order to understand human health and disease, and for development of novel therapeutic strategies.
