& Training Center
Our purpose is to encourage and advance research in glycobiology, promote collaboration, support the next generation of glycoscience researchers, and make glycoscience an integral part of life and material science through outreach and education.
The Glycobiology Research & Training Center (GRTC) is an internationally recognized research unit with a 19-year track record of facilitating and enhancing research, training and collaboration among researchers who study the molecular and cellular biology of glycans and their roles in health and disease. GRTC members include faculty from academic institutions throughout California, with a vast range of research interests.
The San Diego Glycobiology Symposium (SDGS), an annual membership gathering, provides an informal venue for researchers to further collaborations, learn about other research in the field, and exchange information about the latest advances and technology. The 2024 Symposium dates are TBD.
Essentials of Glycobiology, Fourth Edition
The 4th edition of this primary textbook in the field continues the prior tradition to provide a basic overview of Glycobiology, directed toward the advanced undergraduate or the beginning graduate-level student of molecular and cellular biology and biomedicine.
