Glycobiology is a major aspect of molecular and cellular biology. There is increasing interest in elucidatingthe roles of carbohydrate moieties in the establishment and progression of infectious diseases.

This two-day conference provides a platform for researchers investigating the multifactorial interface between glycobiology and the pathogenesis of parasites, viruses and bacteria. 

Topics will include:

·         New tools and techniques

·         Pathogenesis and disease

·         Interventions, targets and strategies

We encourage delegates from all career stages to submit abstracts. In addition to invited speakers, a number of oral presentations will be selected from the submitted abstracts. The organisers especially encourage abstract submission from postgraduate and early career researchers.
