The central goal of the Research Resource for Integrated Glycotechnology is to increase understanding of the molecular basis of the involvement of carbohydrates in protein-carbohydrate interactions and to develop more powerful technologies necessary to achieve this goal. Complex carbohydrates play an important role in many biomedically important processes, including inflammatory response, hormone action, malignancy, viral and bacterial infections and cell differentiation. As new technologies are developed, application to these processes will be pursued through collaborative and service projects.
