The NIH Glycobiology Interest Group (GBIG), with support from the NIH Office of Intramural Research, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), and the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES) will hold its tenth annual NIH & FDA-wide Glycosciences Research Day on Friday, May 5, 2017, in the Natcher Conference Center.
This event will explore a broad range of aspects of the glycosciences; promote communication and interaction among intramural laboratories, as well as with researchers from local universities; and facilitate collaboration. The meeting will include morning and afternoon platform sessions, poster sessions, and a mentoring and networking luncheon that will afford students and postdoctoral fellows an opportunity to speak one-on-one with invited speakers, researchers from the NIH and FDA intramural laboratories, and NIH extramural program directors who handle glycosciences-related grant portfolios. Abstracts are due April 7, 2017.
The Glycobiology Interest Group Steering Committee is composed of scientific staff members from NIH Institutes (NIGMS, NCI, NIDDK, NICHD, NHGRI, NHLBI, NIAID, NIDCR), the FDA, NIST and DOE, who have interest in carbohydrates. The Steering Committee plans and organizes SIG activities including this annual meeting.
