Glycobiology in Infectious Disease

4-5 September 2017

Keele University

A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting


Topics covered in this meeting may be invited to submit to our journal, Biochemical Society Transactions, or other publication published by Portland Press, the wholly-owned trading subsidiary of the Biochemical Society.


Abstract deadline: 7 July 2017


Earlybird registration deadline: 7 July 2017


Providing a platform for researchers within the areas of glycobiology tool development, the role of glycobiology within parasites, viruses and/or bacteria in host invasion to present and discuss current work within the field, this meeting also aims to foster potential collaborations to drive research forward.

To highlight the multifactorial interface of glycobiology in infectious diseases and encourage all delegates to engage with different areas of expertise, the conference will be sectioned via glycobiological classification.

The meeting will appeal to a mixture of established and early career researchers, including Post-Doctoral researchers and PhD/Masters students.
