GlycoBioTec 2017 registration now open!

Dear Colleague,

This is the second announcement to join us on February 7-9, 2017 for the Glycobiotechnology Symposium (GlycoBioTec 2017) at the Harnack House, the historical and intimate conference venue of the Max Planck Society in Berlin.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are delighted to announce that the symposium registration is now open and can be found along more information on the symposium website:

Moreover, we would like to invite you to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations. Submission deadlines for oral and poster presentations are Nov 30 and Dec 14 2016, respectively.

The ultimate objective of this Glycobiotechnology Symposium is to bring together opinion leaders, pioneers, experts, professionals and newbees on this field in a concentrated and focused manner – undiluted by non-glyco-stuff.

At the GlycoBioTec 2017, current trends in modern biomedical/biopharmaceutical glycobiotechnology are presented. This symposium embodies an interactive forum for the discussion of cutting-edge research on the frontiers of glycobiotechnology, spanning fundamental theory to method & technology development relevant to biopharma, health, medicine and functional food.

For the success of such an event it is important to touch the common interests of the community, as well as to convince notable speakers and partners to contribute. Therefore, we can already present, Markus Aebi (ETH, Zürich, Switzerland), Michael J. Betenbaugh (JHU, Baltimore, Maryland/US) and Nico Callewaert (VIB,Ghent, Belgium) as keynote speakers !

Furthermore, the GlycoBioTec 2017 centers on science and people by creating a confidential ambience that ensures a vigorous exchange between delegates, and the attractive conference format features:

  • glycosylation & protein function,
  • impact of expression system & cultivation conditions on glycosylation,
  • synthetic & biosynthetic glycoengineering,
  • glycoengineering via cell line design,
  • technologies & methods for glycoanalysis,
  • challenges in production.

Based on these topics from basic research to industrial application a broad coverage on state of the art analytics, expression systems, pharmaceutical process technologies and medical applications in glycobiotechnology is provided.

We hope very much that you can follow our invitation, and look forward to hearing from you and meeting with you latest February 2017 in Berlin.

Please feel free to forward this invitation to colleagues from whom you believe that they might also be interested.

In case of any questions – please, don’t hesitate to contact us under:
