Glycobiology Significant Achievement Award  

The Glycobiology Significant Achievement Award was established in 2016 by Oxford University Press (publisher of Glycobiology) and the Society for Glycobiology for new and mid-career scientists that have made a key discovery during their early careers with the potential to have a substantial impact on the glycoscience community. This Award is presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society.
