Glycans in immune recognition and response



Our lab is studying the mechanisms that govern glycan immune recognition and responses in animal models and humans, both in vitro and in vivo. We combine glycobiology, immunology, biotechnology and cancer research, and use cutting edge technologies within these disciplines, including glycan microarray and glyco-nanotechnology.


Current interests include: Immunological mechanisms of unique anti-carbohydrate antibodies; Glycoimmunology in xenotransplantation, as members of the EU TRANSLINK consorsium; Anti-carbohydrate antibodies in mucosal secretions and sera; Development novel diagnostics and therapeutics to chronic inflammation mediated diseases; Development of bio-nanotechnology tools based on glycan recognition.
