11th Annual Georgia Glycoscience Symposium: April 25, 2017

Registration is now open for the 11th Annual Georgia Glycoscience Symposium, April 25 at the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center.

The focus of this year’s symposium is broadly in the area of the glycobiology of immunology and infectious diseases, a research area that has seen remarkable growth over the last decade. The program includes world-class speakers representing¬† three areas: Microbiome, Virology/Vaccines, and Host/Pathogen Interactions.

Through this conference we seek to identify gaps in our understanding, stimulate discussion, and encourage collaboration in this exciting field. We will also provide an opportunity for younger scientists (new investigators, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellow) working in the areas of immunology and infectious diseases to have a forum to discuss their most recent data.

Symposium speakers include:

Dingding An (Harvard Medical School, Boston Children’s Hospital)
Sean Stowell (Emory University School of Medicine)
Christine Szymanski (CCRC)
Phillip Berman (UC-Santa Cruz)
Chris Basler (Georgia State University)
Ted Ross (Director of the Center for Vaccines & Immunology, UGA)
Tamara Doering (Washington University of St. Louis)
Joanna Goldberg (Emory University School of Medicine)
Donald Harn (UGA)

Registration is now OPEN! The fee is $30 for graduate students and postdocs; $60 for others.
