New England Glyco-Chemistry Meeting

Date: June 13th, 2020

Location: The Cloud.

We are pleased to inform you that the 4th annual New England Glyco-Chemistry Meeting, will be held virtually on Saturday June 13, 2020. Of course, our current health situation regarding the COVID-19 virus, prevents us from holding a meeting in person, however, we felt the meeting was too important to be cancelled. So, we are going forward with plans to conduct the meeting via a web-based broadcasting program, like Zoom.

The New England Glyco-Chemistry Meeting is a non-profit, educational organization with the mission to bring together like-minded carbohydrate chemists and biologists to the Boston area to discuss their latest research results. Boston and the greater New England area is a hub for biomedical related research and in particular, carbohydrate research. The goal for the New England Glyco-Chemistry Meeting is to bring researchers interested in the broadly defined area of carbohydrate chemistry and biology from Boston and around the world together for one day to discuss the latest developments in carbohydrate research and its larger applications in biology and materials science.

The meeting features an excellent group of invited speakers: Rick Cummings (HMS), Christopher Liu (Kaleido Bioscience), Mark Peczuh (UConn), Nicole Sampson (SUNY Stony Brook), Alison Wendlandt (MIT), and Qiang Zhang (SUNY-Albany).

Please circulate this information and encourage your colleagues and coworkers to attend and present their work at this meeting. Registration is free. More information, including a link for registration, is available on the meeting website:  https://web.northeastern.edu/negcm/

About NEGCM:

Inspired by the great success of the Midwest Carbohydrate and Glycobiology Symposium (MCGS) and the rich carbohydrate science that is occurring in the Boston area, Professor Clay Bennett decided to create a sister meeting in the New England area. The first three meetings in 2017, 2018 and 2019 were a great success, and we look forward to seeing many of you at the 4th meeting at Brandeis University in 2020.

The organizing commitee:
Amit Basu, Brown University
Clay Bennett, Tufts University
Jen Koviach-Cote, Bates College
Isaac Krauss, Brandeis University
