Research Cores

Modern glycoscience relies heavily upon integrated and resource-intensive core capabilities to handle the unique complexity and challenges of glycoscience.  GlyCORE supports investigators with cutting-edge biomedical research tools through the establishment of three central research cores:

  • Analytical and Biophysical Core- supporting analyses including high performance chromatography and high resolution tandem mass spectrometry.  For more information, contact Dr. Sandeep Misra, Core Manager:
  • Imaging Core-  supporting confocal microscopy, including lectin-based and anti-carbohydrate immunohistochemistry imaging.  For more information, contact Dr. Ruofan Cao, Core Manager:
  • Computational and Bioinformatics Core-  supporting various simulations and bioinformatics data analysis to support glycoscience and structural glycobiology.  For more information, contact Dr. Sushil Mishra, Core Manager:

These Research Cores, featuring state of the art instrumentation and led by accomplished researchers in their field, will provide priority support for the research of Junior Investigators, Pilot Project Program Investigators, as well as other glycoscience-related research.
