Glycobasque 5

We are happy to welcome you to Glycobasque 5, the 5th edition of our annual international glycoscience meeting organized by the Glycotechnology (Niels Reichardt) and Chemical Glycobiology (Jesús Jiménez-Barbero) groups of the BRTA centers CIC biomaGUNE (San Sebastián) and CIC bioGUNE (Derio). Glycoscience is becoming increasingly relevant to many areas of drug development, gene therapy, regenerative medicine and disease diagnostics and presents immense opportunities for both basic and translational research.

The 1.5 day meeting will provide seminars from leading experts in glycobiology, immunology and carbohydrate chemistry and showcase state-of-the-art research from participants with backgrounds in cancer glycobiology, glycan synthesis, immune therapy, glycoconjugate vaccine design and analysis of carbohydrate-protein interactions.

We are especially happy to hold the meeting live at the spacious auditorium of the Guipúzcoa Science Park in San Sebastián and in compliance with all relevant Covid-19 health and safety measures. 

Major areas covered in the symposium:

Glycoimmunology in cancer and infectious disease.

Tools and methods for analyzing carbohydrate-lectin interactions.

Development of glycomimetics.

Advanced methods for carbohydrate synthesis.
