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 3056, and will be available via Zoom.  For further information, or to request the Zoom link, email: Karin King BalleringIf you require special assistance relating to a disability, please contact Karin King Ballering, 915-5153,, at least four days before the event.
