The NCBG has submitted an application for a competitive renewal of our Center.

The P41 program, under which we are funded, has been extensively revised and was announced two months prior to our application deadline. In 2012, the National Research Council of The National Academies reviewed the importance and opportunities of Glycoscience, and the resulting report entitled “Transforming Glycoscience: A Road Map for the Future” highlights the importance of glycomics and glycan-related research and training to the nation’s scientific research base.  We hope we will be able to continue to provide collaborations, industry partnerships, DBPs, service and training to the scientific community, impacting those RO1 researchers, some of whom are just now discovering that glycans regulate physiology, disease and disorders on fundamental levels that now can and must be understood.
