Last chance for early bird registration for this online symposium on 18 & 19 November 2021

Register here (early bird). Deadline 15 September 2021.

The glycome has a major impact on every aspect of life sciences, from developmental biology to new forms of personalized diagnostics and therapy. After the genome and proteome, the glycome presents a new perspective on human biology and disease. This symposium gathers national and international leading scientists to provide a universal overview on current advances in the field of glycobiology.

Our symposium takes full advantage of molecular life science developments in genetics, oncology, neurology and more. We will cover various diseases including genetics disorders, cancer, neurodevelopmental disorders, infectious diseases, as well as avenues for nutrition, health and aging. True to our Frontiers symposia, a top line-up of speakers who will provide high-quality presentations on current achievements and challenges ahead. The symposium is aimed at both junior researchers as well as faculty members.

RIMLS PhD candidates can use this symposium for their portfolio. For the RIMLS educational certificate, PhD candidates are expected to attend two New Frontiers symposia during their PhD training period.
