Theme of the conference

Glycobiology is the study of complex carbohydrates in biological and biotechnological context. This is a very broad field that is bound by common methodologies to analyze glycoconjugate structures, to synthesize these structures and to understand their myriad roles in biological systems. The field of glycobiology is growing fast, especially since it was shown that carbohydrate interactions play an important role in many biological processes and are of great interest for biomedical and biomolecular research, and the applications emerging from it.

Objective of the conference

This conference is organized annually by the working groups on glycobiology of the national associations for biochemistry and molecular biology of Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium and France. In 2018, the 29th edition of the Joint Glycobiology Meeting will be organized in Belgium.

The main goal of the conference is to give an opportunity to young researchers to present their glycobiology work to colleagues and principal investigators.

Furthermore, a number of distinguished keynote speakers is invited to present their recent data and the state-of-the-art technology in their field of expertise. The meeting provides ample opportunities for informal discussions between all the attendees, to foster new ideas for research and possibilities for collaborations.
