Save the Date! SFG 2013 Meeting
The 2013 Annual Conference of the Society for Glycobiology will held November 17-20 (Sunday-Wednesday) in St. Petersburg Florida, at the Vinoy Hotel, a recently refurbished old hotel on the bay in the downtown arts/restaurant district.
Online Training and Analytic Resources available from six NHLBI-funded Programs of Excellence in Glycosciences (PEG)
Their goals are to build investigative capacity in glycosciences, and translate emerging discoveries into potential new diagnostics and clinical applications relevant to heart, lung, and blood research.
Biomedical Research: A perspective from Washington DC - Powerpoint Presentation Available
Powerpoint presentation available from Jennifer Zeitzer, Director of Legislative Relations, Office of Public Affairs of FASEB, who presented an update on ‘Biomedical Research: A perspective from Washington DC’ at the Society for Glycobiology meeting on Nov. 14 2012.
National Academy Issues Roadmap on the Future of Glycoscience
A new report from the National Research Council of the U.S. National Academies focuses on the current status and the future of glycoscience. The field, born of chemistry more than biology, lags behind in the technical revolution that powered DNA and proteins to their deserved prominence. While the report recognizes substantial achievements in studying carbohydrates or glycans, it focuses on current limitations, proposes ways to overcome them and offers a roadmap for funding agencies to improve understanding of underappreciated sugars. In response, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) quickly posted a notice on the Common Fund Strategic Planning page listing Glycosience as a future target.
An exciting new report is now publicly available with 3 great ways to access!
FASEB Releases New NIH State Factsheets
The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) has released a new series of factsheets describing the importance of National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding to each state.
NIAID program announcement - Functional Glycomics in HIV Vaccine
The scientific objective of this FOA is to stimulate novel areas of research on the role of glycosylation in HIV-1 envelope protein immunogenicity and modulation of the immune response to HIV viral infection. Cross-disciplinary research activity is needed between HIV vaccinologists and glycomics researchers to effectively carry out proposed research in this area.............
