Carbohydrates Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held from Jun 22 - 23, 2019 at Regal Riverside Hotel, Sha Tin, Hong Kong, China. Conference Description: The Gordon Research Seminar on Carbohydrates is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. Carbohydrates represent an important class of biomolecules that influence a wide range of biological functions. Implications of carbohydrates in diseases have garnered great attention in recent times; however, incomplete elucidations of structure-to-function limit the ability to develop potent therapeutics. In order to address this limitation, a central platform for discussions and development of novel approaches through a multi-disciplinary effort is needed. The 2019 Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Carbohydrates is a forum dedicated exclusively to young scientists to establish network and career developments in the glycoscience community through oral presentations, a career panel, and poster presentations. The goal of the GRS on Carbohydrates is to integrate scientists from diverse backgrounds to drive innovation towards carbohydrate-based therapeutics. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Carbohydrates Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held from Jun 23 - 28, 2019 at Regal Riverside Hotel, Sha Tin, Hong Kong, China. Conference Description: The important roles of carbohydrates in human homeostasis, immunology, allergy, transplantation, microbial and viral infection, host-microbe interaction, cancer, etc. have been increasingly recognized. However, detailed information on how carbohydrates are involved in these important physiological and pathological events at the molecular level is still limited. Significant advances have been made in various areas of carbohydrate research to bridge the gap. The 2019 Carbohydrates Gordon Research Conference brings together experts and emerging investigators to present cutting-edge research progresses and to openly discuss ideas and future directions in the carbohydrate field. Major topics range from carbohydrate structures and glycomics to synthetic strategies, carbohydrate biosynthesis and degradation enzymes, carbohydrate-based prebiotics and therapeutics, glycoimmunology and chemical glycobiology, human and microbial glycomes, and carbohydrates in host-microbe interactions. The conference will feature 29-31 invited talks, 12-16 short talks selected from submitted abstracts, and 4 poster preview sessions. The conference provides a friendly environment for exchanging ideas, building scientific networks, establishing collaborations, starting new projects, and initiating new research directions. The on-site meeting, discussion, interaction, and leisure activities are especially useful for newcomers to get familiar with the major players in the field and to explore new ideas and directions in the interdisciplinary areas of carbohydrate research. The goal of the conference is to advance the field of carbohydrates which will greatly facilitate the improvement of human health. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
