The main themes on the meeting are: 1) Assembly of protein glycans and bacterial protein glycosylation; 2) molecular/chemical glycoengineering; 3) microbiota, mucins, and glycan degrading enzymes; 4) glycans of eukaryotic pathogens; 5) cell biology of glycans in bacteria-host pathogen interactions.

Conference sessions will present the latest research on:

  • Assembly of microbial cell surface glycans
  • Bacterial protein glycosylation
  • Glycoengineering
  • Structure and function of microbial glycans
  • Gut microbiota and mucin glycosylation
  • Glycans of eukaryotic pathogens
  • Cell biology of glycans and host-microbe interactions
  • Glycan degrading enzymes

Following a keynote lecture by M. Stephen Trent, PhD (University of Georgia), this conference will feature four oral sessions, two poster sessions, and a career development session "Meet the Expert," to offer trainees the opportunity to ask questions to a select number of speakers on leveraging their skills to build a research career in academia, industry, or the public sector.
