Program Snapshot

Complex multicellular organs and organisms are dependent upon the roles of carbohydrates for assembly. The use of glycans as biological targets for drug discovery has been hindered by the inability to easily synthesize, sequence and study their biological functions. The complexity of carbohydrate chemistry makes glycoscience inaccessible to most biomedical researchers. The NIH Common Fund Glycoscience Program is focused on creating new methodologies and resources to study glycans, and to develop these resources so they may be more easily understood and accessed by the broader biomedical research community.
