We would like to invite you to join us in Dubrovnik, Croatia on October 3-6, 2018 for the 1st Human Glycome Project Meeting and the 2nd GlycoCom Conference that will be held jointly this year.
The Glycosciences have clearly made an impact beyond the isolated research laboratories and are now exhibiting applications in the development of new drugs, vaccines and diagnostic tools. On the whole, this is being driven by numerous companies that have dynamic R&D programs in diverse areas of the glycosciences. Therefore, after a successful inaugural GlycoCom conference in Banff, Canada in May 2015, we are now organizing a second meeting focused on highlighting new developments that have occurred during the interactions between academic and industrial researchers in this area.
Together with the 2nd GlycoCom Conference, we will organize the 1st Human Glycome Project Meeting. Thanks to recent developments in instrumentation and analytical methods, we believe that both the structural definition of all human glycans and the determination of the glycome variability between different individuals in both health and disease are now realistic goals. Therefore the time is right to establish a program that will coordinate efforts of individual academic and industrial laboratories in this field.
We hope that you will be able to join us in Dubrovnik next October and enjoy both the excellent science and the magnificent scenery of the warm Adriatic Sea.
