GlyCORE Seminar Series
To aid in the establishment and development of a community of GlyCORE-affiliated researchers, as well as researchers with potential future interests or intersections with glycoscience, GlyCORE will hold scientific meetings every fourth week. The meetings will bring together researchers with sustained interests in questions of glycoscience to share research experiences, foster community and promote collaboration.
These scientific meetings, lasting approximately one hour, will allow GlyCORE the opportunity to highlight local glycoscience research and display the capabilities of the Research Cores. Each session will focus on presentations by GlyCORE trainees. The first presentation will highlight current research within GlyCORE. The second will be a presentation of an impactful literature article published recently in the field, by an author outside of GlyCORE. Both presentations will be followed by a short discussion.
Presentations will be held in the Thad Cochran Research Center, Room 1044 at 3:00 p.m., Central Time, and will be available via Zoom. For further information, or to request the Zoom link, email: Karin King Ballering. If you require special assistance relating to a disability, please contact Karin King Ballering, 915-5153, firstname.lastname@example.org, at least four days before the event.
2023 Spring Semester Presentations:
Monday February 6, 2023 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. 1044 TCRC
Dr. Scott Wilson, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University
Prof. Wilson earned his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2011. While at Georgia Tech, he worked with Professor Niren Murthy developing drug delivery platforms for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, cranial re-synostosis, acute lung injury, and osteoarthritis. As a postdoc in Professor Jeffery A. Hubbell’s Laboratory, his research focused on the synthesis and preclinical validation of biomaterials-based subunit vaccines that elicit cellular immunity against infections and malignancy, as well as disease-modifying inverse vaccines for autoimmunity. In 2020, Scott joined the Johns Hopkins Biomedical Engineering Department as an assistant professor.
