Why to participate?
Glycosciences and glycobiotechnology are rapidly expanding fields in research and development. It is relevant for heterogenous areas such as chemistry, biology and medicine. Glycan or glycan-complexes are of special importance since they are key structural elements in cells and are involved in signaling events on their surface. Recently, much progress has been made in research and development in these heterogeneous fields. However, in order to further deepen our understanding of the importance and chances of glycans, we have initiated this summer school. It focuses on the combination of both theoretical principles and hands-on experience for young professionals in life sciences.
The expansion of knowledge and experience is the key to innovation in glycobiotechnology.
The summer school is open to all young professionals who want to improve their knowledge of glycobiotechnology. This summer school is intended to be a joint event that combines theory and practice with a focus on fundamentals of glycobiotechnology in life sciences and latest approaches for the determination of structural properties of carbohydrates, glycans, and of their complexes.
