About Scientific Sessions and Program Highlights
  • IGO Award Lectures and eight Plenary Lectures
  • 20 Scientific sessions including one Society for Glycobiology (SFG) Guest Session, two Asian Community of Glycoscience and Glycotechnology (ACGG) Sessions; one Special  Public Session on the Glycobiology of Viruses and another on Chemical Glycobiology
  • Over 50 invited speakers from over 20 countries in Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America; more will be selected from Abstract for oral presentations. 
  • Collectively cover all major topics in which a diverse range of glycoconjugates are involved including:
    o    From ER glycosylation to catabolic pathways, lysosomal and intracellular homeostasis
    o    Glycans and glycan binding proteins in immune recognition and regulation
    o    Glycan-based cancer immunotherapy
    o    Mucin, microbiome and host–microbe/pathogen interactions
    o    Glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans and extracellular matrices
    o    Plant and bacterial cell wall synthesis, functions and deconstruction
    o    Neuro and developmental glycobiology
    o    Chemical, systems and synthetic glycobiology
    o    Glycomics and glycoproteomics
