Important Glycobiology/Glycoscience-related announcements AND resources from NIH

Upcoming Meetings

The NIH Glycobiology Scientific Interest Group is holding its annual NIH & FDA Glycoscience Research Day on June 1, 2021 (virtual)
The NIH Common Fund Glycoscience Program ‘All Hands Meeting’ will be July 6-7, 2021 (most likely virtual) 
FYI - The CF-GSP is also planning three virtual workshops/symposia (no dates set yet)
